Sun Lit Sunday




This is the last Sun Lit Sunday for this year.
Thank you Karen for hosting.
I'm going to miss them.

Azaleas blooming at the Houston Zoo:

And at the Japanese Garden:

Last year I missed the azaleas blooming in Hermann Park, the zoo and the garden.
Thanks to our cooler weather, the blooms were running a little late 
and I ran on time! 
What a treat!

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Oh, those beautiful azaleas! They're hard to grow here because of all the clay in our soil but I do love them. These are absolutely lovely.

Azaleas, just lovely. I hope to continue visiting and if I did it right will have you in my news blur reader, lol. It has been fun.

The azaleas are beautifully vibrant in colour, Snap, and such a wonderful mass of them!

I like the calm, serene Japanese garden as well and the interesting effect you used with the photograph. It's lovely.

Again, thank you for participating in Sunlit Sunday this season. Cheers to spring!

Beautiful! Azaleas grow well in my yard as we have very acidic soil but they won't be blooming for a while yet.

Dorothy Borders said...

Beautiful. I'm even enjoying the azaleas in my yard this week. They really benefitted from the winter just past.

Michelle said...

Beautiful blooms!

Susan ~ Southern Fascinations said...

So pretty!

Ida said...

I love Azalea's they are so pretty. A few have started blooming here now. Mine are slower though and won't bloom until mid-April. So glad you got to see them this year.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Thanks for sharing the azaleas, the pinks are a pretty colour.

Tomoko said...

Hello,Snap!
How beautiful!The atmosphere in the park is just Japanese. Japanese people like azaleas very much. So traditional Japanese style houses that are surrounded with azaleas are seen here and there. It needs a lot of time and money to take care of azaleas hedge though!!

Art and Sand said...

Gorgeous flowers.

I love the collage you created.
