Azaleas


 Azaleas are in full bloom at Heritage Park Rehab Facility.

Hello, your azaleas are beautiful. I am still away and trying to catch up with my blog reading on this rainy morning! Have a happy day!

Karen said...

I remember seeing huge azalea bushes in Savannah Ga. Azaleas are one of my favorites. Thanks for the beautiful photos!

SweetMarie said...

Really gorgeous, Sandra. I'm sure these photos will make most of your readers extreme;y jealous...and I'm one of them. :)

Ann Thompson said...

they are so pretty. My dad used to have huge azalea bushes in his yard. I've planted a couple and both died

The azaleas are a real tonic to see on a rather grey day in the U.K. I like the quote too. Have a good day, Sandra. It's good to be back blogging and meeting up with my blog friends.

vibrant and lovely!

Ginny said...

Wow, these are stunning and the blooms are HUGE! How is Rich?

Gail said...

Heavenly!

That is what surprised me so much in Savannah...the plants were so huge! Crepe Myrtles were trees.

Sandra, your azalea blooms are awesome. These flowers (exotics in South Africa) always remind me of my childhood in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Azaleas grow easily in that province, and we always had an Azalea festival during September. Here in the Free State province, you'd struggle to grow these flowers. Thanks for sharing. Jo

Happy quote. I like Pink as another fav color of mine and the flower taker is you. Beautiful, beautiful.

The largest azalea garden in Texas is right here in East Texas in Nacogdoches. The town even hosts an azalea festival and garden groups are bussed in from all over the state and beyond to see them. They should be popping up here pretty soon and I'm sure I'll have some photos because I always do. Azaleas blooms don't last very long and the buses are very nondescript when they're not in bloom. It's a long wait for a burst of quick beauty.

Beautiful flowers and uplifting colour:)

Debby@Just Breathe said...

They are so beautiful. We don't have any at this house. I always enjoyed when they were in bloom.

DawnTreader said...

Rebecca said...

I'm living spring vicariously through you.

Lois said...

So pretty! They look just like the ones in my yard.

RoeH said...

Love that color!

pattisjarrett said...

My favorite color of azalea. It won't be long now for ours to bloom (I hope)!

Just Me Pooh said...

Gorgeous azaleas. I am anxious for mine to bloom...I love them and when they bloom I know spring has really finally arrived. Hugs

You are a little ahead of us - ours are not out yet. Our pollen count went from 0 yesterday to 15K today.

Amy Burzese said...

Pretty! We still have a while.

Rose said...

These are gorgeous!

Just FYI, we had snow today...snowed and flurried most of the day. Sometimes really hard, sometimes just a few flakes. At one time frozen little pellets. But it has been too warm for it to stick.
