Normally, I'm not a plant/flower person but your flower pictures are always gorgeous. The colors!

Really lovely, i love it when you post flowers and shrubs...when is your birthday Andrew ?

Joy, My birthday is on the 12th. I will be 38 years old. I am getting so old and it scares me! I am looking forward to my birthday, though. I can't wait for my birthday dinner and my iTunes giftcard. I need some new audiobooks badly having listened to all I have on hand

Hey again! I love the pics of your flowers! I remember when your birthday is...it's two months to the day after mine! :)
Last fall, we planted lots of flower bulbs in our yard, so we have loads of daffodils and a few tulips blooming right now!

Why is it that you, in Alabama, have all this beautiful color going on. Here I sit in Florida with my Crepe Myrtly just starting to get little tiny green leaves. The Jasmine is just beginning to develope some flower buds. The Fig actually has a few leaves. My Canna's are almost a foot tall, but no flowers yet. And my poor Gardenias both look like it will be at least a couple of months before they try to bloom!

The only thing I've got in bloom is the Aloe! It's beautiful - and usually attracts lots of hummingbirds - but the tiny little birds haven't gotten here yet this year. Hope those blooms will last long enough for the little hovercraft to arrive!

And - the citrus groves all around us are in full bloom! One little sniff of the air and you get that fresh scent! I wish we could have that all year.

And of course, the pine trees are dropping enough pollen to turn every vehicle a sickly yellow!

I'm sure glad I don't have hay fever.

Don't you have bugs on your plants?

Love ya,
Grannie

I love azaleas and camellias. Will you post pictures when they are all open?

Lacey,

I will post them just for you in a few more days.
