I decided I had better get out and get pics of the garden while the azaleas are spectacular. It is SO late this year for them. We have had much cooler temps . Now we are getting 80's this week. Some are finished but most are at their peak. I hope you enjoy. c

Beautiful! I'm so jealous. Spring has yet to appear in my neck of the woods, although we are getting April showers today- maybe it will melt the last of the snowplile at the end of my driveway. But temperatures are expected to be only in the upper 30s all week. Maybe we will just go from winter to summer this year.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Just gorgeous! We are behind you, as the azaleas are just starting to open.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Snow showers predicted here for tomorrow ... sigh. The spring time eye candy much appreciated!

Love the antique rockers in the garden.

RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

TR, It has been a strange, extend post winter season. I hadn't thought about my azaleas being late bloomers but you are right. Yours are certainly pretty and seem to be very happy to out and about.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Beautiful!! You are ahead of us. My azaleas are just blooming. I use all pink, white and blue/purple. Had a bunch of new white azaleas put in last year. The new ones we bought this year for the back are called "pink ruffle". Love them! Sadly, I have yet to follow Stinky's advice - I do not have a camilla! (Where is Stinky anyway???!!!).

spring blooms...enjoy the glorious blooms of Spring.
thanks for giving us a peek of your beautiful gardens.

So beautiful! We are not that far along yet in New England:(


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Just gorgeous! I miss the dogwoods and azaleas we had in East Texas. We will be visiting our daughter in TN next week, and I hope theirs are in bloom.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Thanks, I needed that! We still have a foot of snow on the ground, and soon everything will be flooded, so pretty flowers look fantastic right now!


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Aren't you lucky. Most of our yard is still snow covered and where snow was piled from plowing is still about 3 feet. It came down a lot with last nights rain.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Lovely! If I lived there I'd drive by just to enjoy the view. :)


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Gorgeous! Our fruit tree's are in bloom right now, so pretty. But we're supposed to get snow and ice overnight, along with below freezing temp's the next too mornings, so I hope it won't kill the fruit.

Question. Once the blooms are gone, do you plant flowers for continuous color in summer?


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

badger...we will be getting a big rain on Thursday which is why I got out there to take pics. The azaleas sometimes get a "wilt fungus" if it rains and then gets warm ...it makes the blossoms slimy ...yuck ! I hope your Spring comes soon !!

Allison I hope you will post pics. We sure enjoyed the Crocus and Daffies in VA when we were there 2 weeks ago. They were gorgeous. I can't seem to keep Crocus..the chippies dig them up !!

deedee...bbrr...I couldn't take snow !! We had it in VA and it was pretty for one day :) I got the old rockers from my neighbor. He found them in a man's garage and gave them to me. DH thinks I should have them upholstered as they were when they were new over a 100 yrs ago and let him sit in them :)

mustangs...thanks for looking !! They are indeed late but I do believe they are prettier this year than they have been in a while. The big ones are very fragrant...most folks don't know that they have a lovely scent. I hope you will post pics of yours.

tina I have wondered where she is also !! Come out Stinky ! Please post pics of your azaleas. These were all put in many years ago by PO's. Any I have planted haven't done well so I have given up :) I just manage these.

Thank you Nancy ! They pretty much take care of themselves. I prune heavily after they bloom and that is all. I used to feed them but stopped..they seem to do better without fertilizer and I have read that old ones don't need it.

Thank you Joann...please post pics of yours as they get going .

roarah..I remember how gorgeous all the flowers were in ME when I was up there in late June of 2011. They were stunning. I hope you will post. Thank you for looking !

Texan I remember the lovely blooms in East TX when I rode my bike across the country in 2010. They were sure stunning . Maybe you can post pics of your DD's area when you visit TN. Would be a treat to see them. Thank you !

ann...snow and then floods ! Where do you live ??? I am so glad not to have that kind of weather...but we will be in for a long hot Summer I bet again this year so I shall enjoy it now. Thank you !

holly....3 FT !!! Whew...I sure hope under all that snow are your lovely Spring blooms...you will have to take pics when your crocus and daffies come up :)

rosie..there are arrows to direct traffic through this whole area for Spring flower watching !! So you would be most welcome. This area is a registered historic district. It does show off nicely this time of year...all the old houses with their "fancy dresses ". Wish you lived nearer..thank you !

oakley..I sure hope your fruit trees don't get frozen ! No I don't plant anything anymore. I have tons of roses and they show off when it isn't too hot. They are covered with buds now and will be pretty till it gets really hot then they drop all the leaves ..then I get a wonderful Fall Flush. I also have a lot of clematis but they got "pruned " when I had the pool wall re-stuccoed so I have no idea what I will have..then there are the 3 kinds of Jasmine on the pool walls...haha..so I guess I do have more blooms !! But I don't plant anything new anymore as we are gone too much and the drought is too much trouble. I am glad you liked my posies :)

Thank you everyone !! c

RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Your azaleas are gorgeous, C! The colors are so vivid--- and all the shades of red, pink, and salmon look so beautiful together! Ours are just now getting started, but the blossom output this year is anemic, at best. We have some George Tabor azaleas (with really big blooms) that are just not producing this year. Maybe it is all the rain?

Enjoy your garden---it is so pretty! Thanks for sharing it here.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

So, so beautiful. Thank you for those pictures. I have one white azalea and it is also in full bloom, but we had a terrific windstorm yesterday and it ripped many of the blossoms right off the stems.

 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Oh how beautiful! I think we're 3 weeks to a month behind you. Here in NOVA the daffodils are still looking good for the most part, but some are going. Hydrangeas are awake and budding leaves. The cherry blossoms have FINALLY started blooming. No sign of the azaleas whatsoever. The tulips have started coming up, but not blooming yet.

I love your house too trailrunner, I don't think I'd seen it before.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

kswl..funny that you speak of "all the rain "...not here...it makes the backwards letter "c" and misses us almost all the time ! I must be giving off the wrong vibes :( Thank you for your sweet words...if you get over to see family give us a holler !!

fun...I read about the wind in the CA and AZ areas. Pretty amazing. I don't know what is happening with our weather. Thank you for looking !!

ann,,,,oh my....

anele...how generous of you to say so...thank you !! I am glad you enjoyed the pics. I will take some of the roses when they get going !

pirula I wish I had cherries...but many of our neighbors do and they are amazing this year...all of a sudden they burst forth this week. I have cheery cherry envy !! I thank you for the compliments...we do love our home...it was built in 1890 so she has seen some stuff :) please take pics of your flowers !!! c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Oh how lovely! The snow has melted and this weekend we're faced with the sticks and leaves and mess left behind. Your photos were a treat!

RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

It's crazy warm here -- high if 86 predicted for tomorrow, but only 65 by Friday. At least I got a little yard work done, not much. I dumped a bunch of dirt in a depressed area in the yard where a tree came down a few years ago. That spot just keeps sinking and sinking. It's a nuisance. I also mulched a bed that doesn;t usually get mulched because there is some little pink flower that blooms so early, I don;t like to squash it with mulch and then I never get around to mulching there at all.

I love the smell of mulch. When i worked in the city I liked to walk past the Four Seasons Hotel because they always kept the beds mulched.

I also planted some pansies in some lonely looking pots. They were looking parched today because I forgot to water them. Have to get back in that routine.

TR, your house and gardens are lovely. Did you paint the purple chairs yourself? They are sweet.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

beth... I have spent days trying to clear the detritus of winter and storms !! I know what you mean...and ours wasn't hidden by snow !! I hope you will also post pics when it is all cleaned up and flowers are in bloom ! Thank you for your sweet words !!

ded...maybe you need to put in a fish pond :) where the low spot is...I know what you mean about mulch..I just love the smell of the fresh dug earth too. The azaleas are so fragrant and there are bees and butterflies...it feels more like summer today as it was mid-80s. My Dear Brother is in Manhattan and he and his wife were out on the Hudson Bike path for their first ride of 2013...it was 80 ! I am sure it will get cold again before Summer sets in. Thank you for looking !!


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Our forsythia are just starting to open up at least.......

 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Just lov seeing the pics of a " back east" spring. Your setting is so lovely and charming! Hope your dh is healing fast. Thanks for sharing . Any dogwoods?


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

cat..hey..the forsythia is pretty much finished here..I keep meaning to put some in but my neighbors have some. Glad you liked the pics :)

thank you sasafras !

merrygardener..let me know when you are coming ...you can sit on the porch and have sweet tea and a chat !! thank you for looking.

martin...my dogwoods are SO old that their blooms are not all that great anymore . Most of the dogwood trees in this neighborhood are on their last legs and are falling over or splitting when we have storms. That is a dogwood where the 2 purple rockers are...I forgot to answer above..I painted them purple..they were pale yellow the original color when my neighbor gave them to me...also at the curb that is a dogwood by the front sidewalk and the one at the corner of the lot in picture 2 is a dogwood. Newer varieties are more resistant to disease and drought. Glad you enjoyed the pics . c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

it all looks so amazing, truly beautiful !!!


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Well, there's ice on everything. There goes the fruit!

I hear ya about not planting more. I ended up doing a cottage rose garden (have 3 waiting to be planted) and they just take care of themselves. I hope the drought is over though.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

thank you mitch !

oh no oakley...I was afraid of that..I kept checking your weather. That is so sad...although the people in FL coat their citrus with water to form ice on purpose as it saves the fruit...so maybe the trees will still be OK..I sure hope so.

As to the drought...well they are predicting it to get worse..so I don't know...time will tell if the rain cont. or stops like last year.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Love seeing your house in springtime. Or anytime for that matter.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

I look forward to seeing your roses! Thank you!


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Wowser, TR! All of it is just gorgeous, and thank you for sharing the lovely views. You are so right, everything is very late this year. Our azaleas up here in North Bama are just budding and a few are finally opening. The redbuds are blooming, the dogwoods are budding, and the pollen is falling.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Sue...thank you for looking..you know how I love your place too ! That sweet porch ;)

Anele they are starting so stay tuned !

outsideplaying..please post pics of yours as they get to their peek...hope the storms tomorrow don't mess mine up too bad...but we sure need the rain. Thank you for the compliments. c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Your azaleas are gorgeous! I love your house too. You must be in the same zone but our soil is alkaline so we can't grow those here. I love to go see them though and yours are outstanding.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Here's our backyard cherry tree in full, happy bloom (those are dogwoods in front of it. As you can see, they're still sleeping....

 photo IMG_4304.jpg


And here is another favorite. They just started blooming today, violets!:

 photo IMG_4305.jpg

I'll post our azaleas once they bloom....

The daffodils are fading here, which can only mean one thing....tulips!


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

thank you marti !! I am in the same..although I believe that the zones are changing. We are getting more like 8 some years with the colder winters.

oh my pirula..that back yard is SO gorgeous ! Just stunning. Our violets are all in bloom too...I kinda have a love/hate with them :( They are tenacious !! Please keep posting pics of your pretties !! c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Thanks! They are tenacious, I want them to take over the weeds! Is there anything prettier though than finding a violet that has entrenched itself in a surprise location? Like the one that I just discovered growing under one of my front flower pots. So lovely.

You're right that zones are changing. We're officially zone 7 now.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

was sweeping and cleaning up over the past few days and have found rose campion babies everywhere...several in the cracks in the sidewalk !! I was just out and said " hello" to all my violets :) I shall endeavor to live and let live. c

Here is a link that might be useful: rose campion


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Thanks so much for sharing those beautiful pics! The crisp blue sky, vibrant pinks. bright green new growth and white trim create such an inviting landscape! Along with others we're in the midst of an early spring snow & ice storm so everything is coated white and heavy with ice. Your pics brightened my day! There's hope that things will change.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

thank you hilltop ! I am so glad it was a breath of Spring for you. I am just up and checking the weather . It is going to be very bad tomorrow for many areas. I will up early and make sure to have everything put away and truck in the carport in case of hail. It is always something..you are right...change. c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

I'll post pictures as soon as ours hit their stride, but I really don't have that many azaleas either. I haven't had much luck getting new ones established either, and some died after a late freeze and a couple of dry summers, despite irrigation (and DH turning off the wrong water supply before a vacation a few years back...grrrrr). We do have some nice native dogwood around though, and I hope they are as spectacular as they were last year.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

I'll be watching :) Love to see what others are growing. We are holding on for the storm !! If you look at the radar is is a doozy ! c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

So beautiful C! It's been so cold here the daffodils just came yesterday. First hint of color. My azaleas are still twigs.
Very late here and still no run of even seasonal warmth. But we've already got bugs.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

hey roco...so glad to hear from you ! I wondered if you were getting the warm temps yet. My DB and SIL were out on the bikes on the Hudson Bike Path day before yesterday and he said it was 80 !! Same as here :) We are waiting for the storm to hit...only a couple more hours and it will be here. Hopefully the flowers won't be all gone. I hope you will post some pics of your pretties..I will have to check over on AM....thank you for looking ! c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Your azaleas are gorgeous, but what I REALLY love is getting to see all the exterior pictures of your great house. Love the porched and the little triangular roof sections over the bay window. And the pergola.

Just north of DC, we've had two days hit 90 degrees after a long cold spring, so everything is exploding into bloom at one time. I've got my cherry tree, my crab apple and my korean spice viburnum all blooming at once. Usually their blooms are staggered.

As soon as soil temps reach 64 degrees (2 or 3 weeks from now?), we'll have a gazillion cicadas!! I'm actually a little excited about that. We weren't in this house yet in 2004, the last time they came in force. I want to sit out on our screened porch and witness the crazy swarm just outside of the screens.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Whereas I will be holed up in my house for six weeks and if I have to run to the car, will no doubt do so screaming bloody murder in total fear. I missed the last two cicada biblical mating rituals, so this is going to be interesting.

Thank heavens the rains today are bringing normal Spring temperatures back to NOVA. It's been miserable, and the new sprouting baby plants need a drink.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

arlosmom...thank you for looking and your sweet compliments. You know how much I love your home. Wish we were closer ! We love to listen to the cicadas. And we have tons when they do their thing ;) ( pirula you wouldn't like it at all :) ) ! We were having a holiday in North GA in 2007 and they had a huge number that year...they were all over everything on the deck of the cabin we rented just had to love them they were so strange and LOUD ! Please take pics arlosmom of your blooms !!

pirula I am so glad your posies got a drink . We lost power late for a couple hours and the yard and pool are full of debris...guess what I will be doing today :( . But the flowers sure needed the water. You have to take more pics too !! c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

i will. the azaleas are starting to bud, and the bleeding hearts are waking up. I'll post pictures as soon as they're ready.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

After my "downer" message about our snow I thought I would update. Little left in yard but still piles of about 2 feet where it was plowed. The rain is doing a job on it.

And the shepherd's purse is coming along nicely too, won't bloom for awhile yet:

 photo IMG_4396.jpg

The azaleas aren't quite ready to show off, but very soon. I may be able to show the ones on the south side of the house later today, we'll see....

We had the most marvelous thunderstorm last night. Everything is so green and fragrant today. I love this time of year when there's still a chill in the air but the sun is bright, and not a mosquito in sight yet (wish I could say the same for the dandelions).


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

pirula...so pretty and they aren't things I have planted so wonderful to see them in your garden. I tried bleeding heart but it was 't happy in my garden . I have rose and roses and roses out now. The jasmine is almost ready to open and the honeysuckle is already really going.

I was able to swim 2 days this week !! The water was 74.3 !! It was chilly but I love it that way. Now we had the rain before you got it and the temp last night was 39 !! So no more swimming till the days warm again. It was 84 two days in a row. I planted flowers today and clean the shed. it is cool and lovely and fragrant here too. I can hardly wait to see more of your pretties ! c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Wel it's not really fair since I live in California and we basically get spring instead of winter here, but here are some of our blooms:


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

I'm really enjoying all of your beautiful spring garden shots. These really highlight the difference in climate zones and the varied pace at which spring is making its way to all of us. Annkh, oh my. I will stop complaining about how cold it is here in Seattle. At least I'll try.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Okay well this group of azaleas is actually on the North side of the house, not the South. Yes, I do get lost in the bathroom. These are always the first to bloom. The ones in the front are different colors, and I'll post more pics when they bloom, they're very close!

RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Very nice !! So pretty...mine are all done now. That big rain did them in so on to the roses and other things . Will have to post more pics :)

tinan..love all the purples and blues ! c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

I've enjoyed all these beautiful pictures. But here in the Midwest, we are beginning to wonder if we'll ever see Spring. It snowed AGAIN overnight, with a blizzard for awhile this morning. I gotta tell ya, I'm really sick of this. Even all us hearty Norwegians have had enough! Our builder says he can't even begin to dig basements for at least another 2-3 weeks because of the frost still in the ground.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

I'd be sick of it too Joyce, jeez. I thought our Spring was late (and it was)....

I agree on the purples, just lovely. I envy Cali their lack of bugs!

I can't wait to see your roses trailrunner. Mine are quite happily leafing and climbing. Won't bloom for a while yet. Then will come the annual battle with the aphids and the bloody Japanese beatles. Hmmmm, do cicadas eat beatles? Maybe this biblical plague won't be so bad afterall......

Oh! And do you have hydrangeas?? Will be great fun posting those as well. But then I'll suppose we'll need a "Summer 2013" thread?


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

"So beautiful! We are not that far along yet in New England :( "

Ditto-- such a treat to see your lovely pix and the other folks pix as well!
Had to put on a winter sweater dress and leggings this AM! I think we may go straight from winter to summer this year?


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Thanks trailrunner - I love purple-blue flowers, and they tend to be heat tolerant low water use, too. I have some pinks and yellows too but the main path is mostly sages and lavenders.

Don't worry, spring will find its way to you all!


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Well unfortunately, I had to take these in the rain (I shouldn't complain. I love the rain and we really needed it). But I'm afraid the rain may do in the blooms so it's now or never.

The front azaleas, finally blooming:

 photo IMG_4465.jpg

The Shepherd's Purse is blooming:

The Jacob's Ladder:

And perhaps the loveliest, sweetest flower of them all. The Lilly of the Valley has just begun to bloom:

And here's one in the backyard, with the one dogwood that remains blooming:

I am still weeks away from posting roses on the other thread, but they are starting to bud!


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Trailrunner & Pirula, I love the deep bright red Azaleas! Trailrunner, all your blooming flowers are gorgeous! Where are you located to have such beautiful flowers? We are finally having our trees bloom in my townhouse complex but they bloom for about 2 weeks and then the flowers all fall off. I wish I took pictures when they were at their full bloom. Thanks for sharing.

Your azaleas are gorgeous


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

AnnkH & Joyce6333, So sorry that you both have snow and cold weather. In Northern NJ, flowers and trees are starting to bloom but we have days of cold and dampness still like today. I can't wait to put all my winter clothes away.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Pirula...beautiful !! I am so glad you got rain . We had it all around us and not a drop fell...will be like that all week. We can't get a break from the drought that has hovered over us since 2007. I sure hope that it doesn't get like it did last Summer ! Your Shepherd's purse looks like my Ginger. I have tried Jacob's Ladder in the past..it hates the heat here and the on again off again water situation.

Thank you lynn..I am in central AL. Roses are just full the best I can remember. Will get a pick of the jasmine in a day or so when it is really thick with blooms. It smells wonderful around the pool. c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Thank you! Oh I'd love to plant some jasmine. But I think here it would be an annual no? Some of the white blooms you see in that picture is not an azalea but a Daphne. And OMG the fragrance is intoxicating.... It has suffered so much. From Snowmageddon trampling it a few years back. It looks like some prehistoric thing, but I hope it will even out over the years. it's not going anywhere. It's few weeks of fragrance are well worth anything.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Oh I had 2 daphnes One white and one pink. Again it was a problem with fluctuations in the water. Also I tried to move one and they are very temperamental as far as their roots. So no more daphne ! I love their fragrance.

You can plant asiatic jasmine to zone 7...zero is the lowest temp so with a little care I bet you could have it. Mine is HUGE covers the whole pool wall . It is almost at peak...pics soon ! c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Oooooh! We're 7 and almost never get down to zero. Is it full sun though? As you may have guessed, I haven't got full sun anywhere....


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Mine is on a North wall so gets full sun but it is a strong and amazing plant and would do well I think with less than that. For under 20.00 you can find out ! I will have to email you they won't let me post the link !! c


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

This is the front of our house last Thursday after a foot of new snow. Need I say more!

Trees are not budded out yet, but snow has melted and it is a gorgeous day. So maybe Spring has finally arrived.


 o
RE: Spring 2013..pic heavy

Holy cow !! I hope the sun stays out and the buds begin to burst forth :) More pics please ! c
