Garden is Slowly Coming Alive

My two azeala bushes are blooming:

 Here is a closeup of one flower:
 They are so lovely, but in my garden the bush does not get very large.  I envy all of you gardeners who post gorgeous pics of  your HUGE  azeala bushes while I am left to enjoy my puny little specimens!

I cut back my butterfly bush last weekend.  I know a lot of people in my zone (5) wonder what to do with butterfly bushes.  I cut mine down in May.  They grow fast and will reach the top of my deck railing by August.

It has been a while since I have shown you my Colwater Creek purchases (I am too embarrassed to show you everything I buy :) )

A few weeks ago I purchased this top:

Don't you just love the crocheted detail?   I wore this last weekend  and I really liked how it looked paired with  jeans and a denim jacket. It washed nicely, too. I used the delicate cycle and hung it to dry. 

I also bought a pair of Naturalizer wedge sandals that I have not worn yet.
I think they will be great with my white summer jackets. I hope they are comfortable.
I am hoping for a nice day today. It's already 53 degrees and its only 5:30 a.m. Hoping to see mid 70's today.


  1. Cute top and sandals...pretty pink azelses

  2. Hi Zoey- Finally got a working computer- YAY! Your flowers are looking as amazing as always and I LOVE that top. Hope you have a great week- xo Diana

  3. Your Azalea is lovely. My 2 finally bit the dust last year. The last ones I had. I wish I could have them along with the Rhodies, but it's just not meant to be in my soil.

    I do love that top Zoey. I love that kind of thing.

  4. I love to see what you have bought, Zoey. Don't ever think that we get tired of seeing clothes...after all we are women. I don't buy as much as I used I shop vicariously through you :)

  5. I love your blouse!

    Funny I never noticed Azaleas in Mid-Missouri, but they were thick in North Carolina last week.

    Enjoy your beautiful day!

  6. Love your blouse, and love your azalea! I adore azaleas and rhodies although I don't have's on the list. Have a great wknd!

  7. Gorgeous azaleas and cute outfit too :) I have nominated you for the Liebster award. I really enjoy your blog!

  8. Oh my..Zoey, those pink azaleas are so pretty..thank you for sharing!

    I like it when you show us the clothes you buy. I don't really like to shop but it's fun to see what you find.

  9. The close up image of azalea are lovely..

  10. Your azalea blooms are so pretty Zoey. Sorry to hear you lost your smoke tree. Their foliage are so pretty.
