Azaleas are among us


 


Looking down from my apartment windows, I see a bit of color.

These however, are Rhododendrons! Much bigger leaves! And from another year.


A past spring gave these azaleas a beauty. My bushes have been super trimmed back in the last year by our landscape crew, so I haven't enjoyed any blooms yet this year.

Though my antibiotics still are making food and drink just go right through me, this morning I had an egg sandwich with sprouts on flat bread, and it tasted so good!

The postman brought my new shoes...ordered via the net, and I like having something different to wear! Every little joy in life is such a wonder!


Today's quote:

Bedtime can be a perfect time for a nighttime ritual of sending love to the world and finding gratitude for your day.

  8. No azaleas that I can see here. Must be too cold for them or too soon.

    1. It is just beginning here, azalea season...but it's been very warm, so it may be a short season. We'll enjoy it when it happens!

  14. Love the colors of flowers out your window, and your cool colorful shoes. Clicked on your clay pot, and am in awe of your fine artwork. Especially love Sunrise on the Lake. Such beautiful talent.
