My Neighborhood


The entrance to my neighborhood. This photo was taken back in April when the azaleas were in bloom. Such beautiful flowers, next spring seems so far away!

Nice entrance! I like these constructions. It's typically American, isn't it?

Nothing says Spring like Azaleas.

It does seem like we wait so long for the blooms that last just a week or so. These are very nice.

That's what's wrong with spring. It whizzes by in no time and then it's far away again.

I love azaleas! I'm thinking about getting some of the kind that bloom more than once a year.

Joli nom de quartier. Il n'y a rien d'autre qui fleurit après les azalées ? Il pourrait y avoir des dahlias ou autres bulbes d'été... Ou alors, tu vas en planter, la nuit, en cachette ! :-)

VP said...

A perfect welcome, please allow some mild envy for such beautiful environs!

Yes spring does seem quite a way off and yet summer is almost past here in Wisconsin, at least horticulturally... this is a lovely vignette from what is one of the prettiest times of the year! Larry

Azaleas are some of my favorite flowers...our yard at the old house was full of them. And it's one flower I do know the name of!

Your neighborhood is beautiful.

Colorful and pretty entrance into your neighborhood!

I don't know if the star in my photo is abandoned or if it's still being worked on. It's been out there for a while. It adds to the decor of the back though!

It's an attractive entrance so I'm guessing you live in a nice neighbourhood. :)

Lewi: I think these types of neighborhoods are definitely an American thing. I've never seen one in Germany, although there were a few in France where I lived. But they were all quite new (and probably inspired by Americans).

My neighborhood is quite new actually, but it was built on an old forested area - so it looks more established b/c there are still a lot of big trees.

Azaleas are one of «Louis'» favorites - nice to seem them here digitally.
