Callaway Gardens, continued




Thirty years ago I worked a puzzle of azaleas in a forest. The bushes,  packed close together, reminded me of confetti tossed on the ground. 

I noted the name of the garden where the photo had been taken, and although Georgia seemed unlikely as a site for any future vacation, I kept Callaway Gardens in my "wish" file. 

Last week I traded the wish for reality.







 The azaleas were in mid-bloom. A few early ones were spent, limp and pale, while others were still budding. But as you can see, these were prime.








They were particularly effective from a distance that hid any ugly fading blossoms. And they reflected magnificently in the water. 






I'll never have a lake to recreate the effect so I relished the moment and took lots of photos.

Maybe I'll even create my own puzzle!

    1. Thanks for your comment. I can't recommend another blog like mine, because mine is so unfocused!
