The weather in KY today, at least in my neck of the woods, was gorgeous! Cool, breezy, and sunny with fluffy clouds. I got zero writing done of any kind today. I spent the first part of the day off catching up on my sleep, then a late lunch with the family to celebrate Mother’s Day, and yard work afterwards.
We have two Azalea bushes: the old lady out front and a wild child in the backyard. The fuchsia one is at least 30 years old, as an estimate. I can remember it from the time I was a child, and I’m over 30. I’m not sure about the lavender one, though. That one is a bit sickly looking, with some sort of green-grey fungus-y growth on it. We weren’t sure it would bloom, as even the buds appeared sick. But, it’s got some new growth coming up from the bottom, through the middle, and a couple of days ago, it started blooming.
So here’s a few shots of our lovely Azaleas, in honor of my grandmother, and the first Mother’s Day without her. I like to think she would be happy with the work we’ve done since we bought her house.
