Azaleas and more A Photo Blog for Blogophilia 15.4

Sunday was a beautiful June day; blue sky, warm and soft breeze. It would have been sheer madness if we hadn’t taken advantage of the perfect weather. We and another couple took a road trip to a lake town two hours away. The day was filled with gorgeous scenery and great company. On the way we stopped off at a park full of Azaleas. Our eyes just about popped out of our heads from the festival of colour that greeted us. We felt like dancing a Samba around the full bloomed bushes. No rabbits were seen scampering through the park though we felt quite lazy and, even, slothful.

In the evening we arrived home totally relaxed.

 These photos, and many more, were taken Sunday of the Azaleas and the boardwalk by the lake.

(I had problems posting them here so another photo blog will be needed :D)

    Love your intro, and you pictures are very nice. Flowers are breathtaking, and I do not mean due to hay fever.

    You are a fantastic photographer! I can see that you take time in composing your shots!

    I have made it a habit to stop and smell the flowers in the last few years, Summer goes by so quick after our dreary winters! Right now, we are due for another rainy week,…. sigh….

      We had a pink rosebush just outside the back door – the smell was marvelous! We had to move it to the front so harder to smell

      That is so sweet of you to say about my photos – thank you!

      We’re going away for part of next week so of course will be cool – prob stinking hot when we get back.
      thanks again !
