Azalea time.

 Our front garden is full of azaleas.These two are in flower at the moment and I just think they are the most wonderful colours.I should have taken the photos yesterday when it was sunny not today when it is pouring down.
This the most beautiful pink colour.More photos when others come out.
My stepmother died yesterday.We went up to visit and I had been holding her hand(warm) and talking to her when I realised she wasn't breathing.She had obviously just slipped away in her sleep just before we arrived.Quite a surreal situation to be in.She was 86 and had never been ill until two years ago when the Big C got her.


  1. Your azaleas are lovely and colourful on a rainy day. Sorry to hear your sad news. Sending you hugs!
