Look Quick



 Spring is taking on a new sparkle now that the pollen has been washed away.
Nothing like several days of non-stop torrential downpours to make one appreciate a sunny spring day.
Last week it was all about rain and dogwoods and rain and Kwanzan Cherry blooms and rain and a nest filled with bird's eggs.
As you can see this week it's all about azaleas, azaleas, baby birdies and azaleas.
  That birdhouse is on it's last leg.  We have a new one ready to replace it once the little ones fledge.  They don't seem to mind the condition of their abode.

While trying to capture a shot of the azaleas in their glory I looked down and noticed this lone bloom lying on the mulch.  Hard to believe that something so beautiful will be but a memory tomorrow.
That seems to be how spring goes.  Look quick or risk missing the glory of this most lovely season.

  1. Beautiful photos! Your spring is way ahead of our spring! lol! our grass is starting to green up nicely, and there were some crocuses and daffidils up.. but there are still no leaves or flowers on the trees yet... soon though.. soon!
    have a great day

  2. So much beautiful in your world and you captured it wonderfully.
    I love seeing the baby birds. We have a mama cardinal who built
    her nest in one of the blueberry bushes, smart mama.
    Have a great day!

  3. Kim, your garden and yard look like a public garden they are so lovely! Azaleas are so gorgeous and so short-lived. I always question my loyalty to them until I see them in all their glory for that one glorious week. Beautiful photography!

  4. It looks like the azaleas are in full bloom. So, so pretty. Glad the rain has stopped for you.

  5. Beautiful! We had lots of big downpours here last week too. We are sending you more sunny weather.

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  6. Absolutely stunning! So glad you shared these pictures.

  7. Everything is beautiful. So springy green and colorful. Your yard is beautiful!!
    As I look out of the window this morning there is snow coming down!!! It is just starting to stick on the grass. I'm hoping by this afternoon it will be GONE.

  8. Beautiful garden! I love Spring, everything fresh and newly-washed.

  9. The azaleas are gorgeous. And I hope the little babies do well!

  10. Such a lovely garden, Kim!! I love when you share your photos...they always give me a fresh breath of beauty. And aren't those little babies most beautiful in their own way. May God bless them all. You are right, they seem to be quite content for now in their humble home.

    Blessings for a lovely day,

  11. Oh Kim I'm drooling over your beautiful flowers! Beautiful azaleas - one of my favorite.

  12. You should be a photographer for the National Geographic Magazine. These pictures are exceptionally good! Wow! I love the one of the tiny birds, and the one of the lone flower on the ground. Another blog visit here, has been a blessing to me.

    Hope you have a good weekend!

  13. I was thinking today how quickly spring passes. The bluebells are almost finished here and it seems like I have hardly enjoyed them. Your photos are lovely - how great to see the baby birds.

  14. Your azaleas are beautiful Kim, especially the multicolor one, they look like the Encore, Dh and I planted some for a lady this week! Loved the quote, I find it to be so true, spring does offer new beginnings! Have a blessed week!
