Pink Saturday Azaleas

GOOD PINK SATURDAY MORNING TO YOU!!  I AM FEATURING ALL THE PINK AZALEAS THAT ARE BEGINNING TO BLOOM IN MY BACK YARD!  Don't forget to visit our Pink Saturday Founder, Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ for the list of all participants so you can see all the lovely pinks!!  I hope you will join in sometime or every time for Pink Saturday.  Enjoy!!
The miniature Azaleas always comes out to bloom first every year.  These blossoms are about the size of a quarter. 
They are so precious.  We have both light and dark pinks.
This is a normal size blossom and they are just starting to bud and open as you can see.  These blossoms are as big as daffodils.

We have a long row of these bushes on the side of our back yard, they will be just solid soon with the blooms so much so that they hide the leaves!
This is my Crown of Thorns plant that was started from a tiny shoot that my Mom cut from her plant.  I have had it for at least 15 yrs.  It is now chest high on me and about 2 1/2 feet in circumfrence.  We bring it in at wintertime and then it stays outside all summer.  It never stops blossoming.
I do not know the name of this beautiful ornamental tree but it is so beautiful.  We found it on our hunt today for Wisteria Vine that is blooming everywhere in SC right now.  I will be posting those pictures on my  TWO HAPPY blog Saturday also.

Thanks for coming and do come again soon!

I have never ever seen a crown of thorns plant, how gorgeous and how wonderful that your cutting has been so healthy for so long.

We can't grow azaleas here, but I love to buy them as a potted plant. Yours are lovely. Happy PS.

Wow, crown of thorns! But I see no thorns. I didn't know there were minature azaleas. The tree, it could be red bud or one of the many types of cherry, they are rampant here now.

I'd like to blink and be in your neck of the woods. Such gorgeous photos. We may get snow this weekend, so I'm happy I could visit here and live vicariously. Thanks:)

That was a real treat for you to share your Azaleas. After relocating from NO. California to The Woodlands TX. I couldn't believe my eyes the first Spring of seeing the (Huge Blossoms) & gorgeous colors of the the different species.
You inspired me to get to the garden center today. I absolutely loved your Azalea Tour!!

Hi Kerrie, it certainly looks like spring in your garden. It's all so beautiful. I love azaleas but we can't grow them here in the desert. I wish we could, yours are lovely.
Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Kerrie.

Just look at all of those gorgeous pink blooms. Our azaleas are just about to pop. I hope these cold temperatures we are having won't hurt them.

Do you know if Patricia has a new blog? I have been able to contact her for several months.
