Just Walkin' in the Rain.......


Walking in the rain isn't so bad when the spring flowers start to bloom.  The skies may be grey, but color is everywhere!



Daffodils are in their glory!


 Camelias are right outside our living room window.


Forsythia  is finally showing its cheerful yellow blooms.


Early Clematis blossoms are straining their arbors.


This Star Magnolia is so beautiful.


Many shades of Heather adorn the hillside gardens. Yes, walking isn't so bad now.



It's the season of pink snow!  Spring has arrived! Hurrah!

You may be wet but the Pacific Northwest has the prettiest gardens! Lovely spring flowers, for sure.

Beautiful spring photos, Judy. Spring blooms are a little late around here. We're finally beginning to catch up. Love the pink "snow"! :)

Your neighborhood is BEAUTIFUL!

I love forsythia. I haven't really seen it since I was a kid in Philadelphia. It doesn't grow here. I miss lilacs too. They call crepe myrtle the "lilac of the south", but it doesn't have that lovely lilac fragrance.
