On a less showy note...

The ferns are coming alive.

I hope to add a lot more around the yard this year.
There are a couple of houses on Spring Hill that have
them mixed in with azaleas. I haven't thought of a spot
yet where I can do that in my yard.

More Azaleas

I like how the almost-red camelias go with the white azaleas here.

Azaleas in my Yard

Azalea City

This week is the best time to be in Mobile.
The azaleas are screaming from everyone's
yards. Maybe its just the parts of Mobile that
I'm in all the time, but there seems to be more
homes with azaleas blooming in their yards
right now than homes that had Christmas
decorations up....and I've felt like a kid driving
around trying to look at them all.

Spring in Mobile isn't quiet, its loud and in your
face. My dad complains that that in a couple
of weeks it'll be all over...he wants things that
bloom over and over or for long periods of time.
But itsn't it nice to join in this celebration once
a year?

So even though I got angry last year at the azalea catapillers
and thought I would never get another azalea ...
well I got a couple more.
