Pictures of Old Louisville in Spring
The 1300 Block of Third Street
Park to Magnolia

the snowy blossoms of Bradford Pears in late March to early April

The southern half of the 1300 block of Third Street consistently has some of the finest displays of spring color in Old Louisville through much of April, and often lasting well into May.  The blooms are usually at their height, however, during the middle two weeks of April.  Click on any of the thumbnails below and take a virtual stroll down an avenue that might remind you of Oz.
