    Beyond my little garden shed are a patch of some of my favorite shrubs in the yard: Deciduous Azaleas which I planted about 25 years ago. They have grown to about 6-8’ tall.
    When they bloom each Spring, their sweet fragrance is just Heavenly!
    They have been totally trouble free all these years, never needing pruning or any insecticides and the only water they receive is from rain.

    I hope these bright beauties bring everyone some enjoyment!
    Thanks for taking a look!

      I love the Azaleas Patricia, but the photo of Your Garden Shed area is Beautiful! :^D
      Thank You for showing Your Beautiful Yard! :^)

      Looks like a special part of paradise, and it may very well be, we don't really know what we are looking at, or where in the Universe. The flowers are especially spectacular, we still have some clumps of snow sticking to the concrete parking slabs !~

      Hello, Phil...I should have included some details, so here goes:
      Garden shed was built by family members, has lots of windows which I embellished with faux stained glass.
      The attached greenhouse is built from salvaged windows from Salvation Army ReStore. I keep all my potted patio Gerber Daisy plants and others in there during winter- it’s a treat to find some blooming during the cold Winter months.
      Right now I have 40+ tomato plants, bell pepper, watermelon and cantaloupe plants I started from seeds-they will get transplanted to the garden next week!

      The scraggly looking trees in the background are the lingering reminders of a horrible tornado a decade ago. The huge pine and oak trees towering over the shed withstood the winds and, unbelievably, no windows were broken even though a tree limb was driven thru the shed wall. I cut off both ends of the limb but left about 6” of it piercing the wall, lest I need a reminder of that awful time.

      All the flowers pictured are deciduous azaleas. They loose their leaves in Autumn then bloom in April with flowers that are very fragrant. I apologize that their names were forgotten years ago.
      I love that little shed/greenhouse and putter about there quite a lot. I could post some better pictures of it if you like.

      Ms.CrystalShip, thank you for the lovely comment...birds, butterflies, bats, bees so far...I’ll watch for the fairies!

      poticheman, thank you for the music....I do feel blessed with beauty all around, like being at the end of the rainbow sometimes. :-)

      Thank you everyone for all the loves- it’s so gratifying to share flowers with everyone and find that you enjoy them along with me. :-)
