Spring is in bloom in Littleton

Posted

Littleton’s famed Crabapple Route was in full spring splendor the first week of May.

More than 7,000 flowering crabapple trees line the roughly 7-mile route through the heart of town, filling the spring air with sweet perfume.

The National Weather Service predicts May will be colder and more rainy than average, but temperatures hovered in the 70s on May 2, just a day after residents along the route woke to snow shrouding the crabapple blossoms.

Scott Stroup, who lives along the route near Heritage High School, took advantage of the warm sunshine to touch up his flowerbeds, lined with more than 350 flowering bulbs.

“It just feels good to get my hands in the dirt,” Stroup said. “I think it’s shaping up to be a nice spring.”
