Spring Blossoms

Even though we haven't had much weather that could be call Spring-like, I have some Spring blossoms to share with you.
I bought this beautiful pink Azalea this weekend. I thought the color looked so perfect against the brown silk drapes in my living room.

















Sunday, my friend, Mary, brought me these blossoms from her plum trees.



















I have shown pictures of her trees before in this post called Plum Delicious. Each Autumn the trees provide Italian prune plums. They are so delicious. I freeze bags of them to use in tarts all year.

Definitely spring here! Our weather has been glorious. Just returned from Garden Club which was held out doors on the most beautiful ranch property. Wildflowers are so pretty this time of year! Your azalea is so pretty. I've never had success growing azalea, but certainly enjoy the show they offer around the neighborhood in spring. Lovely images of the plums and blooms. ;-)

Just gorgeous.

Such a pretty pink it does go well with the brown.

Very 'Englishly' patriotic in your previous posts.
