Flowers of the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway
One of the pleasures of driving along any scenic road is the bounty of flowering plants that grow on the roadsides. The Upper Delaware Scenic Byway is no exception, as these pages testify. We wandered the reaches of the byway throughout the warmer seasons to give you a sampling of what you can see if you slow down a bit and really pay attention to what’s surrounding you.
The towns and hamlets along the byway also take part in the display, with local beautification groups and clubs joining with businesses and homeowners to adorn their streets with nature’s splendid decor. You may have to turn down a side road to see some of these displays, but it’s well worthwhile—and you’ll enjoy stopping and browsing the shops and sites while you’re at it.
