Picture This #199 Spring

Mitch, thanks for selecting my mural photo for this week's photo. I feel honored to have it posted.

Spring is a beautiful season here in New England. I chose things in bloom. Unfortunately, the season is short lived. .
The azalea  in front of our house bloomed recently.I had to cut the weigela a couple of summers ago because of vines and poison ivy growing within it The last photo is my capture of the lilac not fully blossomed.

  1. First, congratulations on your stunning photograph of the mural being chosen as picture of the week!

    Your azalea is the very epitome of spring with the dew on its petals. I love your weigela, we call them "beauty bushes" here. They seem to burst into bloom. Finally your lilac is very nicely done; what a lovely color. Three gorgeous photos.

    1. Thanks Mitch. That azalea shrub has grown so much that I don't know how to cut it back. It beautifies the front of the house.

    1. Thank you, Belita. The azalea is in full bloom now. It had rained during the night and I wanted to get the droplets on the blossoms.

  9. They are true signs of spring. I bet the air smelled good around the flowering trees too. Very nice shots.

  11. Azelea is not something I would see outside in Switzerland. They are usually small plants in a pot, although we have Rhodedendrons which I think are their big brother. You have a wonderful bush growing in your garden. I think the third is lilac, which are also blossoming in our area at the moment. I do not know what the middle one is, but looks beautiful.
