Today's Flowers: End of March

It's been a rainy end to March but there has been a little blue peaking out for part of some of the days.
The shot above and below are of my azaleas.
I still have some camellias opening up on the two bushes in front of my house.
My dogwood trees are still blooming full force.
My neighbor's cat stuck its tongue out at me in front of my azaleas.
The Pieris Japonica below is another of my bushes in bloom.
Below is one of my rain soaked camellias.
Next is my rain soaked azalea.
Another rain soaked azalea is next.
I shot the dogwood trees through my window during a shower. The white one is mine and the pink one in the background is my neighbor's.
Yet another rain soaked azalea is below.
The white dogwood tree blossoms is in the front with my azaleas in the background.
One more dogwood tree shot.

Oh my! Lovely yard pics Carver!
The red azaleas against the sky with the new green leaves is very lovely. My other favorite is the side by side pink azzlea blooms.
Have to love that kitty pic!

Very beautiful shots ! You complain about rain, in Belgium we had the driest march since 1938, they said yesterday. We would really need rain ! That's very exceptional for a country where we always complain about rain !

I love the red on blue of the azalea shot. Then right underneath the white with insect is splendid.
