Wow! That's a (those are) real beauty! As you saw on my blog a few days ago, I have Forsythia and Camillias, but the Rhodies are still reluctant to come out, and it got down to 35 last night, after a warm week. Still, Spring is on the way!

Purty!

Is that the Crider Mansion?

Those are scattered around town. The one at our house is pretty stunted.

Azalea time in Alvin is prettier than peach pickin' time in Georgia.

Nice. My plants are still covered in ice

Very pretty, but really - you have leaves on the trees already? Here on the 60th parallell we had a couple of couple of degrees below freezing point today, light snowfall and heavy wind, meaning said snowfall was horizontal. Well, at least the days are longer than the nights.

They're blooming here too. So gorgeous.

I'm not sure Azalea's could survive in this climate. And, if they could, they'd be covered with our latest snowfall. Yours look impressive!

Our azaleas our blooming too--right outside our bedroom window. So lovely to see. Also, I've noticed lots of dogwood and jacaronda in the neighborhood. Our camellias bloomed and faded very quickly, perhaps because we had some cold weather (for Louisiana) this year. Anyway, it's nice to see all the wonderful colors and know that spring is here once more.

Excellent! Trees are just starting to bud here in Seattle (well, some places, anyway).
