Hello from Georgia! Tina has invited me to write a posting. I am neither a writer nor a professional where gardening is concerned. But like so many people in this world, I enjoy playing in my yard and talking! I will not be professional by any means but hopefully you will enjoy my occasional postings with Tina. Thanks for inviting me Tina….
I snapped some pictures in the yard today before we headed to town. I am sharing three of my favorite shots of the day. I am not sure how to get them in any other order so until Tina assists me in this department, you will see the photos together in a row. Sorry, I am not too computer savvy but can at least get this on the sight. (I hope so anyway)
We have an island in the middle of our paved driveway. I cannot take credit for the plantings within as they were here when we purchased the house in 2001. The island consists of a Crepe Myrtle, Snowball bush, Nandina (which I did plant) and pink Azaleas. I love when they all bloom in sync with the white dogwoods of the woods in the background.
I snapped a close up of one of the snowballs. It is not completely white as of yet. It is a pretty color of greenish white but will be white soon. I played with a setting on the camera to focus on the snowball with the azalea in the background as a pink backdrop.
I went into the garden to see what was happening there and when I turned around to look at the lush purple Verbena, I spotted the island and dogwoods in the background. What a beautiful sight to the eyes. I think, if you click on each picture, it will become larger so you can really see the full impact.
We drove around town today enjoying the beautiful colors of spring time. I must say, this place has to be the most beautiful place I have ever lived during the spring. The Saint and I both agree that this has been the best year for Dogwood trees. They are popping on trees that we never knew were dogwoods in the woods! The azaleas have not been so lucky the past few years but they are still pretty also just not as perfect as the dogwoods this year…
Tomorrow we will be going to the Masters to see the golf course. We could care less about the game as it really does not interest either of us even though we do watch the final day of play. You kind of have to if you live in Augusta Georgia. They would throw us into the Savannah River if we didn’t. I have two cameras packed and lots of batteries for lots of beautiful pictures. I wish all my garden buddies could be with us. You were on my mind today while driving around taking in the beauty and you will be with me in spirit tomorrow also!
