Love your blooms. And applaud your self promotion.

Pat Hatt said...

Sure quite the spring as they bloom and spring.

Andrew said...

Stretching the memory now.....Indica, Mollis and one I can't remember. All so different but all wonderful azaleas.

CJ Kennedy said...

Beautiful colors in your garden

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Congratulations!
And it is the azaleas season.

RO said...

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

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.

Jamie Ghione said...

Oh, I love these. Very bright colors.

Christine said...

Gorgeous photos!

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.

Donna said...

Oh my word! All those gorgeous flowers!
Beautiful!

Birgit said...

Your flowers looks amazing and I had no idea Azaleas come in different shapes...so beautiful! You are ahead of us although our Forsythia bush is in full bloom. You deserve to self promote!

Sandra Cox said...

Bless your heart, Val, (and not in the southern sense;)
I appreciate that. You made my day.
Hugs received and returned.

Sandra Cox said...

Good for your Forsythia bush! Ours bloomed about a month ago and haven't seen anything out of it since.
Thanks for the deserve:)
YOU, have a great one.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Donna:)

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.

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 !!!

Sandra Cox said...

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.

Saw a bunch blooming around church sunday, what a treat

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Christine;)

Sandra Cox said...

They sure brighten a day, don't they, Steve.

Sandra Cox said...

I'm so glad you like them, Jamie:)

Sandra Cox said...

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

Sandra Cox said...

Aww, thanks, Ro. You are very kind.
Hugs received and returned.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Alex:)
It sure is azalea season. Got them at your house?

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, CJ, and back at ya:_)

Sandra Cox said...

Wow. I'm impressed, Andrew. You know your azaleas.

Sandra Cox said...

I think spring is finally here.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Yvonne!
Happy week to you too!

Sandra Cox said...

Glad you like the blooms:)
Thanks;)

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. :(

Sandra Cox said...

Be right over:)

Sandra Cox said...

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

Jeanie said...

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!

Magic Love Crow said...

Wow!! Gorgeous! You are like a month ahead of us! LOL! Keep promoting yourself!! Big Hugs!

Tara said...
