Annual Reaffirmation

This photo was taken on May 4, 2014 at 10:15 AM
The location was my back yard viewed from the deck at home in Bethesda Maryland
The "Take It!"  Each year spring arrives and puts my yard into bloom.  Once again - I realize that it was the back yard that was the real reason for buying the house.  The intensity of the colors and the length of time that the flowers last, lets me know all over again - that the comfort provided indoors is necessity - the splendor of spring while my garden is modest - it is luxury.
The After Take:  While I am not a big social being - showing pictures of my yard is very much like having a garden party of sorts.  Everyone seems to enjoy the variety of colors and the simplicity of the deck and layout  
For those who are considering doing some gardening - I can encourage you, for the planting of the right flowers and bushes will bring annual reward.
Thanks for spending a moment with me in this modest but colorful setting.

    This makes me jealous. I would love to have something like this at my house but I am allergic to bees.

    Thanks for the kind comments. The yard is amazingly easy to maintain as only have a small patch of grass that is more of an accent than a main feature.

    Teri: The colorful bushes in the foreground are azaleas and the white flowers are on a dogwood tree that just happens to fall right into line for photographs.

    Best wishes to all

    I will have to let my husband know to look for those at the nursery. The azaleas are just beautiful.
