{Our Azaleas Before the Rain}

We have had now several days with heavy rain and that is not so good for blooming azaleas and other blossoms... But here are some photos from our azaleas before the rain:
Are those flowers not a DREAM?
To the left you can see the newly raised, wood trail, as seen from the gazebo. Pond is to the right and center.
You can see those raised edges from the wood trail here:→ {Cashmere Words of Wisdom & Update} - just scroll down to the last 2 photos.
Very lush and healthy!
Greenhouse in the back...
Glad I captured these before they got heavily rained upon!

  3. Sono stupende Mariette, ho provato diverse volte a piantarle anche in giardino da noi, ma purtroppo il terreno non è quello giusto. L'unica consolazione è quella di godersi le foto di chi le ha...
    Buon fine settimana,

  5. Wat jammer van de vele regen, dat is zeker niet fijn voor de bloemen. Het ziet er op de foto's prachtig uit, gelukkig dat wij daar nog van mee kunnen genieten. Houdt de regen nog lang aan? Ik wens je een fijn weekend, lieve groet

    1. Beste Willy,
      Ja, zo zie je maar als je een tuin tour of iets dergelijks lang van tevoren wilt plannen en een datum prikken; oh zo moeilijk! Het weer werkt niet altijd mee en de regen laat alles als foddels hangen en het wordt gelijk bruin. Jámmer maar dan wachten we maar weer een 'jaartje'...
      In zo'n geval zijn de foto's kostbaar en die deel ik ook graag. Ja, het regent nog t/m maandag.
      Liefs en ook een fijn weekend.

  6. Liebe Mariette...sie sind wahrlich ein Traum. So schöne farbige Akzente im grünen Garten zu haben ist einfach toll.Die weisse Azalle ist besonders zart und fein anzuschauen. Eine wunderschöne Blüte.

    Geniess eine schönes Wochenende!

      Ja, voor de planten, struiken en bomen is regen mooi maar níet voor bloesems, die hangen gelijk slap en worden bruin. Maar je kunt niet alles hebben en gelukkig zijn er nog camera's om dingen vast te houden.
      Liefs,

  8. Hello Mariette, I totally agree with you about the charm of azaleas, especially in a wooded setting such as yours. Here, they are planted in quantity along the streets, often in concrete planters, and while they are attractive and colorful, the same magic isn't quite there. Thank you for these photos, which make me homesick for the U.S., in spite of the abundance of azaleas here!

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Oh, the charm about azaleas makes me reminiscent about Mom & Dad's very first trip to the USA, in 1987, from April 20 till May 16 and we took them to Savannah for watching the Southern charm of azaleas. That has been the best memory of beautiful azalea blossoms for us as well.
      In planters it never is the same but it foremost is also the climate. Glad we have some good photos of this year's blossoms as now everything is so soggy after a full week of rain and still no end in sight.
      Glad you enjoyed them and wishing you a happy weekend!
      Kindest regards,
      Mariette

  10. Very pretty! Haven't seen that muted pink before. I grew up with bushes and bushes of hot pink azalea in our backyard in Louisiana. Your yard looks lovely. The rain will freshen everything else. We have dust, dust and more dust. Ugh! Best wishes, Tammy

    1. Dearest Tammy,
      Thank you and yes, instead of dust, this probably is far better. There is enough of everything in this world; rain and sunshine but the distribution is often quite off.
      Hope you can manage, however hard...

      We cannot control the weather and this is very wet for the time being. Our beautiful Angelique tulips got drowned too and the bulbs rotted away... Sad sight but there's nothing we can do about it. At least we captured these on camera in their full beauty.

      Thank you and yes, the woodland walk keeps our feet clean and dry when the weather is rough. We enjoyed those azalea bushes also from our bay window view at breakfast and such.
      The pond is a rather big one, not entirely visible in this photo.
      Thanks for the wishes for no rain but we have three more days of it...

  23. I'm glad you captured these gorgeous images before rain, and we got to see the beautiful blossoms :-) In my hometown, there is a big azalea park and in blooming season, they have lots of visitors. I haven't visited there forever. It's really nice you can enjoy them right in your yard :-)

      Yes, it was meant to be like this and we're lucky for having at least the photos.
      In Japan I bet there are the very best azalea parks. When we visited in July, they were of course not blooming but beautiful shrubs we saw.
      When the weather cooperates, we can enjoy them!

      It will be hard for ever competing with those picture perfect azaleas in Japan but we sure do enjoy ours. This year was not the best one as the rains have destroyed most delicate flowers, too soon. But we always can look forward to the next year - can't we?!
