The Azaleas here are old and just beautiful.


There are so many shades.


I always find this bush interesting.
The white one is planted next to the pink one and always has this one branch of pink running through it.
It's a different shade 
and the white blossoms have pink through them as well.
Some kind of Hybrid?

 These are all on my street...Thought I'd throw in a "Rhodie."

My newly mowed lawn...
The best part is that I didn't have to do it.

Hello Missy, I love the various shades of the azaleas and the rhodie is pretty too. Your lawn looks perfect, very pretty yard. Have a happy day!

So beautiful! Your place is looking great -- how green and lush is your grass!

Your place is so lovely!! I love all the flowers in your neighborhood! But the best part is not having to mow the lawn. I so love to work in my yard but not mow. And to think my lawn part is fairly small. It takes about 1/2 hr but I still don't like it. My big white azalea bit the dust, don't know what happened, sad! Hope you are enjoying the week, hugs!

Oh such total neatness!!!!! -sighhhhhh- And you don't have to do, any of that. Lucky you.

But of course, it's all included in the "package" and you pay for the "package". No free lunches. :-)))))

Nice to see your purrrrrrrrrfect house on one floor. I have such one-floor-envy. -pout- -pout- -pout-

We could be all on one floor. If we turned our large unused front room, into a bedroom/sitting room. And had contractor give us a shower, in the downstairs bathroom/laundry room.

But!!! He feels that to do this, is "giving up"... Grrrrrr... It's all in the mind. And I don't agree at all. But... So far... -sigh- We continue with the unused big downstairs front room, and bedroom (plus unused bedrooms) and full bath, upstairs. -pout-

With my knee issues, he was going to get a stair "rider" thing. I don't want that. Eeeek!

He is the most kind and will do anything for me person. But so far, this is a sticking point. -giggggles-

Good grief! Sorry for venting in your comments!!! -giggggles-

Such beautiful blooms! You must love walking through your neighbourhood to see all this fantastic colour. Your lawn looks very lush :)

NanaDiana said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous pictures,Missy. Your home looks just beautiful with that freshly mowed lawn. I can't believe how lush everything is there already- xo Diana

Hi Missy! You have a lovely home! I LOVE azaleas and rhododendron's! I don't know why the nurseries around here (northern IL) bother to sell them. Unless you're really knowledgeable about gardening and know how to amend the soil, they're such a waste of time and money to buy, but oh I do love them both! Beautiful!

I love the colors and everything neat, clean and nicely groomed!
(I still want to do my own mowing though!)
