Azaleas in Virginia

Mr. B and I left Connecticut in a cold rain and headed to Virginia. We took turns driving through heavy rain and fog. In Harrisburg, PA it was Mr, B's turn to drive and my turn to nap. I woke up outside Chambersburg, PA in a different world. Blue skies, warm sunshine and the middle of spring. It was lovely! Dogwoods, redbuds and azaleas were in full bloom! Here are some of the azaleas I enjoyed in Virginia. The butterfly on the flower in the collage was taken in the yard of our Virginia house.




I took the hammock south with us and the night we arrived it was up and I was in it! It was a warm, breezy evening and I could hear the night sounds. Believe me, that hammock was well used during the time we were there. Oh, so nice to have some Porch Days!

We met with the realtor and our lake cottage in the woods is for sale.

Visit Mosaic Monday and see all the lovely mosaics.

Ooohhh I love the idea of a lake cottage!! Hammocks sound wonderful too! I am from Alberta and we are far from having hammock days...a very cool, wet spring with not much sign of green yet. Be sure to stop by That Country Place...cheers!

I have never seen whit azaleas before. Beautiful. Best of luck in selling your cottage in the woods. That had to have been a difficult decision to make. I'm glad you had the chance to soak up a bit of rays in your hammock on your last trip there.
