We spent another lovely visit with my parents on the occasion of my Dad’s 82nd birthday today. Many of their flowering shrubs and perennials were showing the first flush of blooms, and none could outrival this gorgeous Nanking or Chinese cherry bush. It was awash with delicate pink blooms.
Not to be outdone by the cherry, this pink azalea (below) was just beginning to show off its petals.
My parents’ property is beautifully landscaped and I’ll be sure to include more of their Spring colour as it unfolds. I also took some photos of ‘Nature at her best’ as we travelled through a secondary, wooded road, but I’ll save those photos for another post. It was a sunny day with summery temperatures — simply BEE-EAUTIFUL.
