  8. With the way you can plant such a colorful garden, you deserve to self promote as much as you want to! These all look so lovely and bright. You clearly have a gift Super Sandra! Hugs...RO

  9. I tried to grow azaleas when I lived in MO, but they died after one season. I can grow hostas, but not azaleas. My friend Sally bought your flower Gardens sometime last year when you were promoting it. It is wonderful.

    1. Azaleas love the south. They're more persnickety about the Midwest.
      Oh how lovely to hear. Please be sure and thank her for me.

  11. I'm so jealous. I can't have azaleas or anything that takes a lot of water. Hydrangeas are another plant I love and can't have. Your azaleas are beautiful, so I'll just make do by looking at your pictures.

    1. You know when we lived in the Midwest, I was enthralled by azaleas too. You could buy them but there were no guarantees on survival. They thrive in NC. You can't hardly kill them. They are so common, I now take them for granted.(Shame on me) I love hydrangeas too. Mine have been blooming every other year so I need to figure out what's up with that. I read they do well with coffee grounds so I've been sharing my morning coffee with them. Heh.
      Have a great one.

      Thanks for the deserve:)
      YOU, have a great one.

  14. Sandra; the flowers are amazing.....azalea'z wont grow here unless they are inside; and the pot is as big as a fridge; hosta's barely peeking up from the mulch ~~~~~~ :( ♥

    and self promote until you've earned a bazillion in sales !!!

  15. I hear you on the azaleas, FSG. While this is azalea country they do get picky about the Midwest. The hostas have just exploded. I'm assuming it had something to do with the winter though I can't figure out why since other of my flowers were very under impressed.
    I smile every time I see 'a bazillion sales'.
    Have a relaxing evening. Let the cats wait on you for a change...Yeah, like that's going to happen. Not.

  19. The pictures look really pretty, especially the one of your book. :) I've always liked fresh flowers, but they're hard to keep fresh in an apartment. That's why I'm considering buying fake flowers, but they're not the same. :(

  20. Flowers don't last long inside, but they're sure pretty while they do.

  21. I don't know that I'll see much in the azalia line but one day -- maybe not too long from now -- my hostas will come up and I can't wait!
