Azaleas - The quintessential Southern flower :-)
Hi! It seems like forever since I have posted - I didn't think that would happen when I started this blog! I have so much to say (my friends will laugh at that!) and I love to write, so I figured I would post constantly. But..... life is busy and full of activity and I wouldn't have it any other way! The writer of one of my favorite blogs is "hibernating" right now. Perhaps that is what I have been doing - enjoying life and taking care of what is most important to me, my family!
We have been enjoying a beautiful spring lately!! Spring is always beautiful in the South!! It is such a joy - gorgeous weather and beautiful flowers everywhere. We don't have much of a fall in the south and summer is hot as *&+@#@ so we definitely enjoy our springtime. It is awesome to live in a place where you can wear shorts in March and head to beach in the early spring!
Here are some pictures have I snapped recently. I love seeing the wisteria, azaleas, and dogwoods in bloom! I drive about 50 minutes through the country each day to work. I am sure Seth got tired of me saying "Oh, look that is gorgeous! I wish I had my camera!" Finally, one Sunday, we just grabbed the camera and went for a "flower ride"!. Jon patiently pulled the truck over so I could capture the beautiful sights of southern Alabama! Enjoy! Hope you are enjoying spring in your neck of the woods!
Not sure what the official name of this plant is - we call it a "snowball" tree!
Wisteria - a little piece of Heaven on Earth. This picture was taken in my friend Diane's back yard. She is blessed to live in the country (kinda/sorta). It is so peaceful :-)
This picture doesn't do this gorgeous tree justice.
This farm was filled with dogwoods. Amazingly beautiful!
My mother - in - law grows the prettiest roses!
More of Miss Mary's roses! She can grow anything!
Our Knockout roses - pretty and easy to grow!
"Happy" flowers by the front door!
I will be back soon with a few projects, Easter decorations, and pictures of Seth playing baseball - another terrific sign of Spring!
