Junie's Place: First day of Spring in Ocala!

First day of Spring in Ocala!



This first day of spring has been perfect here in Ocala.
Yesterday was a grand day too.


In my post yesterday I showed you a bouquet of Azaleas,
reflected in a mirror!


These pictures (today's post) were also taken yesterday when Charles and I were cutting the flowers to bring in the house and arrange for display.

As I mentioned, this light pink Azalea usually blooms a few days ahead of the darker flowers of our other bushes!


The abundant, early spring blooming of the Azaleas in this area is one of the things that first attracted me to this place where we eventually built our home!

It will be our last home, I feel sure. I hope so for I can't imagine ever living any place other than here!


Springtime is beautiful!

Hi Dot,

Yep- you're not that far north from me since you moved! :) You'll have Azaleas blooming real soon!

Looks wonderful. Our first day wasn't as nice as most days lately.

Oh Junie...it's all so beautiful, and I needed to see that. We had more snow yesterday; but didn't amount to much. I hope that's it. I knew I shouldn't put my snow shovel away...bad vibes.

I have given you an award Junie...and so HAPPY to do it. Please stop by my place and pick it up...it's well-deserved. Love, Joy

I've never had much luck with Azaleas and the deer like them too so mine are scraggly.
Yours are beautiful!!
