It’s Bloomin’ Tuesday!

Our azalea and blueberry bushes have blossoms bursting out all over.


We have one azalea. It is planted in in our back yard against the back of the house. The blossoms are pretty year after year.

This azalea is in our neighbors’ yard.
I like how it grows in front of their front porch railing.

Bee Tending the Blueberry Blossoms

We have four blueberry bushes in our back yard. When we cover the blueberry bushes with netting, they have yielded quarts and quarts of blueberries.

    Check out those berries. They will be so good in the summer with ice cream. Stunning azalea in the back yard. Have a good day.

    I love azaleas but have never been able to get one to grow…I am tempted to try one again.

    Amazing! Azalea's are houseplants here! I have never seen one that looks like this and outside to boot! Kudos to you., Paula from Idaho

    I see a lot of Azaleas around our town, I must say these you have featured today are some of the prettiest I have EVER seen!

    I really like the third one – striking angular contrast of the railing (and house in the background) with the azalea.I also like the “rain-kissed” photo – nice job!Tough conditions on the blueberry blossoms. I'd probably try a highlight enhancement and light equalization to balance it out. White flowers are tough! Very nice detail on the bee wings. Well done!

    I love the single Azalea – really powerfully done. The pic with the bee is also quite phenomenal, Linda! Grand photos all around.

    Nice looking photos of the Azalea bushes. They are so colorful and give your home and nice look. We have 3 of them in front of our home and have always appreciated the beauty of them. Thinking of planting 3 more white ones around the back of the house, but I hate digging holes for them to be planted.Les

    Beautiful azaleas! My grandmother had tons of these in TX. Hubby bought me a plant once, and I transplanted it outdoors, but it did not survive the winter.Lucky you to have a place for blueberries! My favorite! Great shot of the bee!

    You must have acidic soil to have such luxuriant blueberries and azaleas. I think I'll have to give up on blueberries in the garden and try them in pots instead.
