This azalea bush lives in the corner of my drive way, and it is such a happy bloomer! The pinky-purple blossoms make me smile each spring and I wish they would last longer.
Over the weekend talk was had over whether or not we should plant more azaleas up the curve of the drive. I don’t want anything that is going to take a lot of care and pruning, but azaleas grow nearly wild here and I think they would add a lot of color to the yard without having to work so hard for it each year.
We have our choice of white, or a pink red, or these……and THESE are my favorite color by far!
The trees grow tall and leafy now….this is looking up at the canopy the covers the drive and shades the house from the summer sun. Oh how I have missed this shade of green!
Sometimes it’s like they’ve never grown up at all!
But I love that they are becoming better friends than they ever have before.
((And did you notice the LEAVES?!?))
My “Dancing Nines” baby quilt top center #1 is together and ready for borders! It needs a bit of trimming on the edges, those plaids are a bit stretchy, but oh so soft!
I’ve decided that quilt #2 is going to have pale green sashings – where I originally thought red. The red was just too strong, but this is just right! It’s a fabric designed by my friend Mary Koval, and it’s lived in the stash for just this purpose……it will be PERFECT!
Borders are still working in the back of my mind. Maybe I’ll go simple, or maybe I’ll do something fun….I’m just loving how these leader/ender 9 patches that have been set back with no project in mind are coming to fit the bill for these two cousins who are on a race to see who will be born FIRST!
Auntie Bonnie better get BUSY!
