I love the color of this azalea .

These are planted at the end of my property.

This is the red azalea that is behind the pink one in the above photo.

My apple tree has a few blooms on it.

These come up every year. 

These come up every year also.
It is warming up nicely so I have been getting my flower pots and planters ready so I can soon go buy plants to put in them.  I am not much of a gardener no green thumb but I keep on trying.

Hello, dear Madeline! This beautiful and happy post made me smile.
The colour of your favourite azalea is indeed wonderful - and such a big, happy azalea tells you are a good gardener. :)
Have a blessed new week!

Madeline I have tried for years to grow Azaleas with no luck. Please tell me what the secret is?

I believe the soil is the secret. My husband and I just planted them I do fertilizer them every so often. They just do good where I live. Madeline

Your yard is lovely. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for coming over and visiting.
I'm hoping to get a Garden Diary post written tonight. So I can share my efforts too.
Have a great week.

Such beautiful Spring Azaleas - aren't they a great standby in the garden.
Your Cornflowers are such a lovely blue and I'm spying your pretty bird bath behind, it's exactly what I'm looking for.
I had a similar one for about twenty years and I cam home one day to find it smashed in two on the bricks - wandering dogs maybe as I know it was much too heavy for cats to knock over.
I bought a replacement on just so the birds had water through Summer, but it's just not right - I'll keep searching!
Have a happy day dear Madeline!

Thank you Shane. The bird bath you see is not made of concrete but something that is light and that I am able to move around. Thanks for the visit. Madeline
