Round Robin Photo Challenge -- Garden Portraits
For this Round Robin Photo Challenge, which comes along every two weeks, the theme is Garden Portraits. I seem to be in between blossoms out there but I did find some pretty azaleas. First, though, is the side garden, with rose bushes that don't seem at all ready to blossom (I think it's been too cold). There is another nice-sized bush along there, too.
Here is the blossoming azalea. The ones I have are from my late husband, who planted them and cultivated them after receiving the seeds from the Royal Gardener in England many years ago. He was able to sell most of them to a neighboring nurseryman that he had worked for but kept a few for himself.
The azaleas always bring back memories. To see more Garden Portraits, go to the link in the first sentence. This meme is always fun!
