paint to fabric and I get really excited!!

Awash in spring pinks!

Spring and summer are hands down my most favorite times of year. I believe I was meant to live under palm trees, but in a garden would probably suffice just as well.

As I age, I enjoy flowers and greenery even more if that is possible. The really ironic thing is that I am a terrible gardener. However, one thing I have learned over the years is that I can take photos of flowers and trees and bushes and have my garden year round.....works for me. 

This past weekend we made a quick dash back and forth to Halifax, Nova Scotia  to spend some time with our daughter. We managed some delicious meals (food at this restaurant is always a favorite!), some birthday cake ala cheese cake, a lovely stroll along the waterfront, and another through the Public Gardens. The park is awash in blooming magnolias and rhododendrons and sharing soul that I am, here are a few shots I took......

These are the delightful blooms of the “double dip rhododendron! 

Beautiful tulips that greet you as you enter the gates!

    Beautiful flowers Jennifer...my Rhododendren had lovely blossoms this year, but no leaves; well not worth mentioning. Is it because I haven't fed it?

  2. I am not really sure, Marjorie. I have leaves but no blossoms! And the leaves showed up so early this year that they some have turned brown and dropped off.

    Sounds like mine; except it happens after the blossoms leave....weird
