Springtime in L.A.

It's mid-March here in L.A. (Lower Alabama).  The daffodils and Bradford pear trees have already done their blooming but other plants are at their peak right now.  

Confederate Jasmine



Can you see the butterfly that stopped by to have her picture taken?


Here she is being still so you can see her beautiful wings.

Cherry Blossom Trees (I think)

Red Bud Tree



Spirea Bush



Forsythia Bush

I just have to show you these fantastic arrangements of forsythia that are NOT in Lower Alabama.
They were at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in February when I
visited there.  The first one is at the main desk in the lobby.  Then there were four more
arrangements along the walls in large niches.


These next pictures are of plants that are considered weeds but I think
that they are beautiful in their own way:



And Coming Soon!  Azalea Season!
I have my first little bloom but in a couple of weeks,
the bushes will be covered in white.  So many pretty colors
and varieties of azaleas will be on show in Alabama.

  11. Ha! When I saw "LA", without even looking further, my first thought was Lower Alabama. Yep. Only another Alabamian knows this. I'm in East Central Alabama. Sylacauga. I love to see Alabama bloggers who are interested in decor and creating!
