Weekend Waterview

Happy Sunday! Here’s a little weekend waterview. . .

I took these photos over the last couple of weeks. . .

The viburnums and azaleas have peaked and most of the blooms are now petal confetti after 35 mph hour winds and storms blew through on Friday.

It was the perfect ‘bird-chirping-weather’ yesterday. . .

Cool and sunny with no humidity . . .

Ideal weather to tackle some gardening and spring cleaning projects.

Just when I think the pollen is starting to wane, my sinuses and the water tells me otherwise!

The azaleas have been beautiful this spring. . .

And the lake is starting to ‘wake up’ and stir with boaters and activity on the water.

Hope you’re enjoying some beautiful spring weather where you are!

Thank you for your visit, sharing with:

    Beautiful pictures! Yes it’s been nice here in South Georgia but we’re about to kill our selves working in the yard every Saturday.

      Looks so tranquil, peaceful and easy living … I have been weedwhacking for fire prevention to the point of numb arms and staggering legs, lake living looks good! I yearn for sundresses, straw hats, iced tea and a good book in the garden, my iris are blooming but to frantic to rest until weeds are gone.

    Your gardens along the shores of Lake Norman… priceless! Beautiful views around each and every turn.

    Those AZALEAS! Are spectacular!

    Beautiful landscape of florals! I can’t believe the pollen though! We’re in the infancy of spring here. I am enjoying getting outside once again! Happy Sunday Mary!

    We keep hoping but it snowed here again last night in Michigan! My daffs are drooping! It’s beautiful sunshine today. I’m hoping they will rebound quickly.

    Love the Viburnums and Bridal veil shrubs but the wind here is contributing to their dimise also. Lost a sixty foot pine Friday night and never even heard it fall . The white tulips are gone but my mock orange is just coming out along with the roses,iris and clematis Peonies will open this week. All is good. Had a visitor at my bird feeder yesterday, a gorgeous male Rose Breasted Grosbeak stopping for a meal on his way to his nesting area up north. Such a spring time treat.

    Beautiful photos Mary! We are actually enjoying a glorious spring this year! So many years it seems we go from winter to summer. The pollen has been bad but the colorful blooms make it worth it as long as as you have allergy medicine! I love bird chirping weather & alfresco dining. Have a great day! Clara 💖🐦🦋

    Mary, your beautiful blooming shrubs could be a sales brochere for garden centers. Each view full of color and incredible spring beauty. I think living lakeside would be a wonderful life. I miss our days on the water with our Hyacinths for the Soul. Those were young and carefree days, every free parcel of time on the water. I’m still at work in the garden. It is never ending, as you well know. Today, I need to fertilize and go to the garden center to find more annuals to add now that the temps are warming. I love visiting a garden center! There are so many temptations and promises for the days to come. Happy Sunday!

    Sailboats are everywhere today. Gorgeous day.We are thrilled to see the arrival of an osprey family on a structure my husband built many years ago.
    It is so interesting to watch. Humming birds too along with Purple Martins.

    Beautiful images, Mary. Hope the pollen is soon over. Would love to be sitting in your Adirondack chairs gazing at the lake and watching the world go by!
    Happy Sunday.

    I’m so glad that you can enjoy the outdoors (except for the pollen!), Mary. My favorite photo is the one with the azalea and the birdhouse!
