Variety



Julie commented yesterday that azaleas beat camellias hands down. Well I like camellias because they brighten the winter garden I have to agree there is nothing to beat the spectacular variety and beauty of the spring flowering azaleas.

Reflection:
1 Corinthians 15:39 (The Message)
You will notice that the variety of bodies is stunning. Just as there are different kinds of seeds, there are different kinds of bodies—humans, animals, birds, fish—each unprecedented in its form. You get a hint at the diversity of resurrection glory by looking at the diversity of bodies not only on earth but in the skies—sun, moon, stars—all these varieties of beauty and brightness. And we're only looking at pre-resurrection "seeds"—who can imagine what the resurrection "plants" will be like!

  1. A stunning collection of Azaleas. Lovely variety of colours too.
    We have one, a bonsai, which is quite hardy and blooms for a long time.
    Thank you for the Reflection too.

  2. Wow! You weren't joking!!

    Azaleas are chickie-babes, whereas Camelias are dowager aunts.

  4. unbelievable! i can't imagine the work
    to accumulate and care for all these
    gorgeous flowering shrubs.

    i have to weigh in on the camellias.
    though they don't last as long, they
    are so spectacular at a time when few
    others plants are blooming.

    azaleas are the quarterhorses of the
    garden! consistent, true, dependable,
    and beautiful.

  5. Not much work required on my part. They were all planted by someone else(probably several generations of gardeners because some a quite old). I let nature take its course other than an annual prune along Azalea Walk so there is still place to walk.
