Azaleas

Rain overnight, and the rising sun greeted a warm mist over the lake. Last night we slept with the windows open and the sound of the Carmine's running streams trickling in.

We are awash with places to go, and people to feed, water and bed down.

Meanwhile...





...slowly but surely, the camellias are giving way to the azaleas.

PS Today is the last day of Lent! Click here to know what it means for me.

Cold and wet here in the UK. Your flowers really are ahead of the game. Nice photo.

Blazing sunshine here - makes a nice change from snow and ice! ;-)

Enjoy a glass of wine on me...

Your azaleas are amazing! I'd plant some here, but the soil really isn't acidic enough.

Beautiful Blooms.
