Sourwood and cherry blossoms

Sourwood is in bloom now.  It's a favorite for honey farmers.

The last of the ornamental cherry blooms, unfortunately as shoots on the trunks, which will be removed soon.  But I enjoy the blossoms anyway.

Azaleas huddle against my fence.

Unknown blossoms on some volunteer stems.

Trunk on the left is a sourwood tree, and the one on the right is obviously dead.

More of the former neighbor's azaleas; all of her yard has been ignored.  Maybe soon there will be some care given to these plants. Some relatives were visiting there this week.

I had a half hour of internet being down last night...around 8:30.  My connection was strong, but nothing out there could connect.  Oh no, here we go, I thought.  "It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine..."

Quote for today:

Seek goodness everywhere, and when it is found, bring it out of its hiding place and let it be free and unashamed.
William Saroyan

    2. Oh you meant the "end of the world and I feel fine" quote...takes a while some mornings for me to grasp English.

  2. the cherry blossom is lovely... I like the quote :)

  3. Lovely blooms, and nice quote!

  4. I have never heard of a sourwood tree before now. You blossoms all do look great. I suppose the azaleas will last a lot longer than the cherry flowers.


Welcome to my blog. I'd love to hear from you.. I do review (monitor) comments so I read them, but I'd rather share them!
