You'll have to take my word on this one. I can't give you a picture because I drive past this one at high speed.
Here it is:
Virginia DOT is widening a four-year divided highway to six lanes. The first order of business is clearing and grubbing at the sides of the road, so all the trees and shrubs have been cut off to ground level. The whole road looks naked and raw with only dirt and sawdust on the side slopes.
Well, that's what the side slopes looked like through the Winter. However, this Spring, there came up daffodils, and they are blooming now. Chainsaws and wood chippers can only do so much; some things defeat their best efforts.
