When I think of the deep South, there are just a few things that come to mind. Delicious Southern Cooking, Sweet Tea, Porch Swings, Azaleas and beautiful Magnolias, most of which you will find at my house. Well, I don’t have a porch swing but I want one…does that count? idk
Anyway , this is the time of the year for gorgeous Azaleas and I am not in short supply. I have several Azalea bushes in my yard and what I do not have, my dear brother has in his yard next door. I love taking pictures of them when they are in full bloom but the trick is catching them in full bloom. Once they hit that high point, it doesn’t take long for them to wilt away. What you are left with is beautiful leafy green bushes for the rest of the summer months and, here in Mississippi, that could be on into late October!
Here is a digital scrapbooking layout that I created in PhotoShop to show off one of my bushes in the front yard. These blooms are just gorgeous! The bumblebees think so too! I do not like to post layouts without giving credit to the designer of the digital products that I have used. This layout was created with “Spring Blooms” by Laura Burger Designs and will be coming soon to her store at Forever.com.
I will venture across the yard to get more photos later when the rain stops. Hopefully, the rain will not knock all of the blooms off of the bushes!
Until next time!
