    Spring has sprung

    While all you ladies are heading into Autumn - I notice that you call it Fall - we here in Australia are heading into Spring. I have added a couple of photos of some azalea bushes that are enjoying the lovely warm spring weather that we are having at present. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do - they are near my kitchen window so I can see them everytime I am in the kitchen

    Oh Karen,
    I do hate the winter months, so I hope you will continue to regularly share warm, sunny, colorful spring/summery pictures over the next 6 months, please!! Your azaleas are truly lovely!

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Absolutely gorgeous, I have Azaleas also mine are pink with the color of your first one mixed in. It almost hurts your eyes it is so bright. I had to prune the bushes so house could be painted, next year may not be as pretty. Enjoy them while they last, ours only last a week unless we get high winds or rain.
    I'm looking forward to cooler weather as we had a very hot summer this year.

    Beautiful!! I was complaining about the calenders always having desert and 'hot' pictures on them, so my friend from down under sent me a calender and right now I am looking at Green Island - Great Barrier Reef in Queensland. And my my friend is touring the eastern part of the U.S. before she heads, with some other ladies, to Aspen, Colorado for the John Denver get together in Oct.
