Here’s a little weekend waterview from Lake Norman.
It’s been the perfect weather to sit outdoors with low humidity and sunshine!
And a beautiful, warm spring week in North Carolina!
We’re looking at temps in the mid 80s on Monday.
The azaleas have been beautiful and are peaking in color. . .
Their two week ‘swan song’ as the foliage is less than spectacular
the other 50 weeks of the year. :)
The pink blooms seem shockingly bright!
The snowball viburnum blooms are waning, some already
petal confetti after a blustery few days.
Hope you’re enjoying some beautiful spring weather where you are!
Happy Sunday ♥
Our snowballs and azaleas are at the same phase as yours (central Va). Thanks for sharing your flowers. Yesterday, I saw my first hummingbird in my blossoming beauty berry
Beautiful photos, I love the weekend waterview posts.
May I ask a very cheeky, off topic question? I used to follow a blog called Romancing the Home. The lady blogging had a business somewhere (Chicago?) then built a home in I think North Carolina and then – nothing. Does anyone know why she stopped blogging. I still read and re-read her posts.
Beautiful pictures. I just added snowball viburnum to my list to plant…heading to nursery tomorrow to find one! My azalea is beautiful too! Just thinking I should go take a picture to have to look at this winter! Missed seeing your sweet puppies! Peace
Mary, your azaleas are beautiful. Our have almost completed their swan song as well as the snowball viburnums. Happy Sunday!
What a lovely way to start a Sunday morning! Thank you!
Hi Mary ~ just beautiful ! So nice to see all the colors of spring. Here in New England we have daffodils and , if they are in a sunny spot, tulips. Our spring so far has been bordering on winter. Can you send up some warm spring weather ? Hugs, Dorinda
Sadly, our azaleas are beginning to fade, but their colors were brilliant. I think they liked the cooler spring. Our mountain laurel is beginning to bloom and that brings another array of color. (coastal VA). Thank you for sharing your view with us.
It is lovely to see all the spring flowers! I live in Oregon and it has been raining. Really a lot. We’ve had more rain in the weeks of April than all of the last six months. Our flowers are finally starting to bloom, although we are weeks behind your state. By looking at yours, I can see what nature has in store for us soon.
Stunning photos Mary! Wonderful weather right now!!
Beautiful photos Mary! Our azaleas are blooming too. We’ve hit 80 with humidity. I love the rare days of low humidity or no humidity. Lake Norman looks so inviting. Your viburnum is so pretty. They’re in bloom here too and I’m so tempted to buy one but the deer make it challenging! Happy Sunday! Clara ❤️
Always beautiful around your place. I have never been an azalea fan but yours make me swoon :)
Suddenly summer is back. Did lots of plant sales this week and have a table full of plants to put in containers or directly in the ground. Calling for some clouds and showers on Tues so will wait till then to work in the garden. The heat brought an end to my azaleas and Tulips but my snowball bush and other viburnums are beautiful. Every day something new is blooming. Love this time in N.C. Your Lake Norman looks so beautiful. Just what I needed this afternoon while relaxing after a houseful of company has departed. Thankyou Mary and have a good week.
Beautiful! And yes, their bloomtime certainly coulxd stand to be longer, couldn’t it? We had a few great weather days this past week and I got a lot of work accomplished outside. The weekend heat has made me need to really baby new plantings and transplants. Spring returns tomorrow evening 🤞.
Gorgeous color Mary, enjoy the nice weather! We’ve had a ‘real’ spring this year, cooler temps. I put in a new raised bed veggie garden, fingers crossed:@)
It is so beautiful.
What beauty, Mary! Your azaleas and snowballs make the prettiest view!
So gorgeous, flowers with water backdrops melt my heart!
Hi Mary and happy birthday! Our azaleas are just in bud here in PA. We have had a FEW days of springlike weather but the next 3 days are COOL and very windy. UGH. I am antsy to plant my flowers but will have to wait til next Sunday. Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers.
Gorgeous as always. The framed shot of the azaleas and bird house is stunning!
Hope your birthday was filled with delights and that you are doing something special.
Birthday hugs sent your way….Sarah
