OK, here they are. These are just the spring blooming azaleas. The ever-blooming azaleas had not started yet… they are starting to bloom now. The azaleas and the redbud bloom at the same time. These shots were taken 2 weeks ago.
Some friends brought me a couple truck loads of ‘shatters” – the Eastern Shore name for the long pine needles that cover the ground on much of the Shore.
John (Deere) and I carried loads of shatters around to mulch the acid loving camellias and azaleas.
These last 2 shots are the new Meditation Garden I started last year. This has both spring azaleas and fall blooming azaleas. The winter was hard on it… killed several newly transplanted camellias and stunted the growth of the new azaleas. But, Buddha is happy… this is good.
I hope you enjoyed the stroll around my garden. Next, currently blooming peonies and iris and whatever else is blooming tomorrow morning. ENJOY!
