Outdoor Wednesday

As I walk around my neighborhood, I am always so delighted when the Azaleas start to bloom.  Yes we have flowers blooming here.  It's been 82 degrees for the last week, which I think is absolutely glorious!

Take a walk with me.  This house is just down the street.



Such pretty Azaleas.
And what about this crazy tree!  A tree climbers paradise :-)

The azaleas are beautiful and those trees are amazing! Are they Live Oaks?
Thanks so much for visiting!
Blessings,

Yes - that tree in incredible! The azaleas are lovely as well. I never see them in Colorado but grew up in Virginia where they bloom in a couple more months.

Thank you for that blast of color - quite a while before it will happen here!

You must be further south than me. We are just beginning to see buttercups. That's a sure sign spring is coming soon. No azaleas yet!

Beautiful! I recall such a tree on my parents property in Orlando and loved it as a child! We have one azalea that has buds on it! This is not normal for here in the Mid Atlantic! Our jonquils are blooming.

This is a beautiful sight for my cold eyes :) It's going to be quite awhile before I see this here. Thanks for sharing. ~Susie~

I love azaleas so much, but they won't grow for me - mum had a gorgeous one at our old house. That tree is awesome! I'm totally jealous of the 82 degrees, Jocelyn....

What a gorgeous tree...quite like a work of art...and surrounded by the azaleas it looks beautiful...how nice to have the warm weather...still a foot of snow on the ground here and winter temps. We are excited when it gets above freezing.
