I love these silly things! They fly in in the morning and out in the afternoon. Okay-I know they are poop machines, but they are beautiful.

This tree is across the street from the entrance to my subdivision.

My neighbor's house.  So organized.

Azaleas: the Queen of Southern Flowers

Again. Our beautiful azaleas.

I pass these beauties everytime I go somehere--in or out.

Another house in my neighborhood.

At the entrance to my subdivision.

Wisteria. So pretty. We don't have lilacs here--too hot. So we have wisteria and crepe myrtle.

Flowers in the garden at Sunrise Assisted Living.

One of the things I love so much about England is the total love of flowers and gardens. We have beautiful gardens here, but they aren't quite the same. Maybe it's the difference in the climate and the kinds of flowers we can grow. Either way, they are God's smiles on earth.

Oh Marian, what a memory jolt for me when I saw the beautiful azaleas. Growing up on the Gulf Coast, you know azaleas were everywhere. The azaleas here I call baby ones :)They are pretty but it's just not "home".
beautiful pics.

Beautiful! Lovely azaleas, they are blooming here, too.
We have geese occasionally in the pond across the road. I love hearing them fly over, and seeing them walking and swimming. I don't think I'd want a flock of them in my yard, though!

They are beautiful spring gardens, love the azaleas.

Thank you for sharing your pictures. I so love gardens in England. We have an arboretum here but it is not the same. Still I get great pleasure from going there and sitting and looking at the roadrunners and beautiful flowers.

I'm having a blog catch-up session, been a while since i was here... sorry

Salem Witches is lovely and your SAL in memory of a lovely lady is going to be super.

Flea Market is really pretty in the red frame, looks a treat.

Good news that Charlie is home and feeling much better, there seems so much sickness about in the blogging world recently with friends and relatives

Fabulous pics of your trip, ewww the snake though, i would have been out the door running in the opposite direction!

What a riot of colour your super flower pics are, the azaleas are beautiful, they are one flower that we cannot seem to keep here.

Gorgeous pictures! I do miss all of the azaleas from our southern gardens!
