Happy Sunday!

Here’s a weekend waterview from Lake Norman.

There is rain in our forecast today with thunderstorms moving through this afternoon,

but otherwise, it’s shaping up to be a

‘nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina’ kind of week!

Low humidity with sunshine . . .

ideal weather to dig into some gardening!

I took these photos over the course of a week.

I’m always amazed to see the progression of blooms

and leaves on the trees in just a short time.

April is typically when the azaleas peak here at the lake. . .

The pink is so vivid, it almost hurts your eyes to look at it.

Our Snowball Viburnum by the lake has been beautiful this spring. . .

The only snowballs you want to see in April!

We planted another viburnum last year by the shoreline.

It’s looking a little bedraggled after our heavy rain on Friday.

The lake is ‘waking up’ and stirring with boaters and activity on the water. . .

 Mr. and Mrs. Mallard have returned and are regular visitors . . .

We’ll most likely see ducklings soon.

Word travels fast through the duck grapevine about the sunflower seed that the birds

spill from the feeders, and by August it will be duck central here.

    Beautiful! Spring is just beginning in my neck of the woods. We have nice kinda warm days and then several cool days. That’s exactly what we need for a slow snow melt. Happy Sunday.

    Your blooms are lovely and ahead of ours by at least a month although one of my wisteria is putting on the best show ever. We had our first sighting this weekend of the local geese that are familiar in our area; always a good sign that Spring is officially here!

    Oh Mary – your pictures are just always so beautiful. Things here are starting to come to life again, too. We had several nice mid 70s days, but it got cooler and rained today. Hope that sunshine and warmth returns soon.

    Oh, oh, oh! Gorgeous photos of your heavenly place there on Lake Norman! The azaleas, snowballs, and your peaceful lake make me smile!
    Have a beautiful week!

    Such beauty surrounds you, Mary! Your azaleas are glorious! Did I tell you that my son, Tim, bought a snowball viburnum? I’ll be anxious to see how it progresses! I hope you have a wonderful week in Carolina!

    So beautiful to see the lake and vivid color. Went to the nursery to buy a snowball, nary a one, they aren’t even blooming here yet so aren’t in stock, I am on a mission now!

  20. April 17, 2023 at 7:59 pm

    What a view anytime of day! I want to add snowball viburnum to my garden. Need to research and see if it will grown here. The glass water reminds me of sailing days without wind early morning. I attended a party this past Saturday that was hosted on Lake Travis. That’s the lake where we kept our sailboat. I rarely am out that way, so it’s always a treat. I miss being on a lake!
    Happy gardening! Enjoy your wonderful weather.
