Saturday Photo Hunt - Colorful


After having been out of the Hunt for the past two weeks, I felt it was about time I got back in the saddle and posted something. Fortunately, this week's theme of "colorful" coincided nicely with the blossoming of the beautiful azalea bush in front of my house. Unfortunately it doesn't bloom for long but for a few days at least we've got some gorgeous color in front of my humble abode!

For those with eagle eyes, you're right - there are no flowers in my window boxes yet but I hope to rectify that soon after a trip to the local plant nursery. You will, however, notice that the hanging petunias that I got for National Telecommunicators Week are blooming quite nicely and also add to the color in the upper right-hand corner of the picture!

Everyone have a great, safe, and colorful weekend!

    The flowers are very nice and planted well. I wish to plant these flowers in my house but so sad that the weather in my country is too hot for the flowers.

  2. Anonymous10:41 PM EDT

    Oh my goodness, that is gorgeous! I bet they smelled as great as they looked :)

  3. Oh, I thought about doing colorful flowers...why? Because I love them so much! Yours are breathtaking!

  4. That is a beautiful bush! I love it!

  5. I don't think I've ever seen azaleas in person. Your's are gorgeous. I'm just waiting for my lilacs to bloom. I love how they scent my yard. They don't stay around long enough either.

  6. Thanks for stopping by again. To answer your daughter is only 3!!! But she loves the same music I do because thats what we listen to together. There's a free concert in a few weeks with Starting Line, a little punkish band from Philly and Im taking her to that. Its free so if its too much for her (even with earplugs) we can leave. And, I already have my Projekt Revolution tix for August (without the 3 year old, of course)!

  7. WOw, that are really in full bloom - ours isn't doing as well, sadly.

    I love to have flower infront of my house. but too bad I live in apartment. no space for us to plant nice flower.

  9. Wow! Those are beautiful!!!
    Mine, along with my rose bushes aren't looking so well after that last cold snap we had.
    Great choice for the theme!

    Beautiful! The azaleas here all finished blooming several weeks ago, so it is nice to see some new ones! I am hoping to get some petunias up in hanging baskets soon.

  11. That is just gorgeous! What a beautiful bush! I hope you post photos of the window boxes when they get filled! My photo is up, please come and visit

  38. Your azaleas are gorgeous, Linda! Beautiful colorful photo. Thanks for stopping by Pollywog Creek and for your very kind remarks. The first photo was edited because I focused on the flowers and made the rest of the photo black and white, but the zinnia and spider are exactly how it came out of my camera after cropping. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

    I love how the pink ones look like fire sometimes.
