I don’t know who I am kidding when I say spring OR fall are my favorite seasons. Not anymore. Sure, colorful leaves are pretty, but let’s face it, they are dying. I’ve often lamented having to put away my skirts and sandals. And the last couple years I have almost felt an anxiety about the cold, dead months.
Spring it is, hands down. Everything is coming to life. I love landscaping. I will walk around my neighborhood and just stare at yards and beautiful flowers and trees – sometimes stopped dead in my tracks by a brilliant hue. I’ve also discovered that the Botanical Gardens are free every Saturday before noon. A weekly morning walk??? I will be practically living in the place this summer between that and Jazz in the Garden on Wednesday nights.
And nowadays, summer comes in second for me. Yes, it is hot. But I just love summer activities – music, camping, festivals, travel, etc.
Anyway, what I think I really wanted to say in this entry is that I cannot think of ONE REASON why anyone with a decent-sized yard and the right climate would NOT have an azalea AND a dogwood.
