Hi everyone! I have not shown you anything PRETTY for awhile, (moving is NOT pretty) so I thought I would share some beauty around the yard. This is a gorgeous time of year around here. We have about 40 rhododendron bushes and more azaleas so things are very colorful right now. It is amazing to watch the unfurling of a flower. God's artistry at work.
 The columbine are just starting to show their colors too. I will show some other ones tomorrow. I just saw that they are blooming out by the driveway too.
 These rhodos started out here at about 18 inches tall. Now, they are about 20 FEET tall. This is ONE bush, FULL of buds and blooms. It is right off our back deck.

 Last night I went and bought my flowers for the window boxes and pots and last night and tonight got all the window boxes planted and most of the pots. I will share the deck "all gussied up" later this week.

 These are deciduous azaleas. There is an orange one and a salmon colored one. Some lavender azalea is shoing through behind them.
 The salmon bloom.

 This rhodo is Joe's favorite. Just that one speck of color on the white flower. SO pretty.
 This is a red rhodo. My old boss was THROWING IT OUT and I asked if I could have it. She thought it was dying. Well, it has been here for about 18 years and thriving:):)
 When it is in full bloom it is beautiful and I will get a shot of it then for you.

 Thanks so much for stopping by. I am going to share this at these parties:
