The azaleas have just opened up in my yard. They are glorious!
SO GLORIOUS... that I went to Lowe's yesterday and bought five more bushes! (They are small so they were only $2 each -- how could I go wrong for that price?) Fortunately for me, my hole-digging husband has also fallen in love with azaleas too!
I can't think of too many things I enjoy more than watching the yard come to life in the spring. Some of my hostas are peeking out of the ground too! I hope the others I can't see yet have survived the winter and will pop up soon. The grape hyacinth bulbs were a birthday present from my family who know how much I love spring flowers. As I was planting them last November, I was re-thinking the wisdom of asking for yard work as a gift. But I'm so glad I did... they've been blooming for several weeks now, giving me great pleasure whenever I look at them!
