Full Bloom

Today we took our first excursion since before Covid 19 started. We met with our old friends at Lake Norman NC. It was a wonderful day of connection. The house where they were staying this week was surrounded by beautiful Azaleas and Dogwoods in full bloom. It was a gorgeous time to be there. I am pausing my story chapters to share some of the beautiful flowers with you. Hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Nature’s best for free

Blooming beauty you can’t buy

  1. Wonderful blooms, our azalea bloomed early, our dogwood trees are young so aren’t as plentiful yet, I love the butterfly. Thank you for sharing your first outing photos. Enjoy your visit! Take care.

  2. Some very beautiful blooms you captured, and a beautiful butterfly too. And most importantly you could step out on an excursion, meet old friends and spend a good day with them. Hope life opens up and becomes as beautiful as it once was, before pandemic.

    I have some pink azaleas, but didn’t know the name. Thanks to your post, I could identify from the first photo πŸ™‚

    In their quiet beauty the flowers say “Spring”, “hope”, “joy”, “breathe”, “smile”, ETC! πŸ™‚
