Just Relaxing

This post, “Just Relaxing” was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana 

 

I got home from work a little later than normal and just took a walk around to relax.  It was too late to do any work, so it was nice just to check on things.  In stolling the garden, I discovered the azaleas on the north side have almost fully opened.

The freesia have returned for the third year in a row now.  I love the sweet, citrusy aroma which reminds me of apricots.  The yellow and purple are blooming, and the white are in bud.

I noticed the wisteria is starting to bloom as is the magnolia fuscata, now called michelia figo.  Both are giving the areas around them a wonderful aroma.

 

And finally the Barlett pear tree has opened all its blooms and looks gorgeous.  Each cluster reminds me a of a small bouquet.

All in all, it was a nice, relaxing time in the garden.  Maybe tomorrow will bring time to do a little work.
