Pink, Orange, and Gold
Hello, friends! There is a lot more going on than my absence of posts would indicate. I’m in the swing of spring and have been busy with the annual planting of the flower pots. There’s not much to share in that regard yet, since the plants are so young, so today I would like to invite you into the garden where the perennial favorites have faithfully returned.
I photograph this azalea every year and I never get tired of it. It’s a large bush planted on the upper level, but its blooms spill some distance down the garden steps, as well.
The bear will not remain in this spot. He was purchased on a road trip in Northern California in 1972. Made of redwood and impervious to rot, he had become overgrown in another patch of garden. We fished him out but have not yet found him a new home:
How about some gold?
More pink. Foxgloves this time:
A brilliant orange azalea, surprisingly full of bloom considering how the deer ate it down its first two years in the garden. I have two of these side by side. This is just one. They’re quite small yet, but I can imagine the “wow” factor when they’re full grown:
More gold – Golden Wally:
And golden LuLu:
Please come visit again in a day or two. I love it when you stop by!
