Our World Tuesday: WRAL TV Azalea Garden

Sunday was cloudy in the morning and rainy in the afternoon.
ourworldtDSCN6433
Fortunately the rain didn't start until after we made a morning visit to the WRAL TV Azalea Garden in Raleigh, NC.
ourworldtDSCN6461
The Capitol Broadcasting Company founder A.J. Fletcher created the garden in 1959.
ourworltDSCN6431
The garden underwent a major renovation in the early 2000's
ourworltDSCN6437
The garden has 45 different varieties of azaleas.
ourworltDSCN6447
I was also taken with what a great habitat the garden is for birds.
ourworltDSCN6465
There are lots of birdhouses and birdbaths, suet cages and other treats.
ourwortDSCN6454
There is also a great variety of different plants as well as all the azaleas.
ourwortDSCN6456
The garden has whimsical touches.
ourwortDSCN6470
I'm sure it's a great place for people who work there to take a break.
ourwortDSCN6472
I like the winding paths and enjoyed walking down and around.
ourwortDSCN6477
There are also a lot of trees which I find restful in gardens.
ourwortDSCN6488
There is something about brand new green leaves that I love.
ourwortDSCN6504
I'll end with the whimsical tree ornaments.

The Weekend in Black and White: A white camellia

I think the light and shadow on my white camellia, almost makes it look artificial.

SkyWatch Friday: Here and there

I avoid going to Crabtree Valley Mall whenever possible but I had a pretty day for it over the weekend.

I don't know who the people on the mural outside of the Hudson Belk Store are.
skywatchDSCN6029
Back at home I shot the new leaves on the trees against the sky.

Monday I shot a water tower when I went to work in Durham, NC.

Wednesday we had a vivid blue sky although my trees and the driveway side of my house are hiding most of it.

ABC Wednesday: Outdoors

It was nice getting outdoors today after working in the Durham, NC office.
abcwedoutdDSCN6116
Before driving home I wandered out into Grace Garden.
abcwedoutDSCN6135
I don't have very many shots on my computer because my old one blew up this weekend and I haven't put back ups on the new computer yet. So these are shots I took Monday outdoors.
abcwedoutDSCN6143
I only lost a little over a month of photographs since I had disc back ups through March 12, 2013. It could have been worse.

The Weekend in Black and White: Pollen Swim

The pollen was so thick on the edge of the lake that it looks like the duck is swimming through mud.

SkyWatch Friday: New Life Springs up against the Sky

I love this time of the year when everything outdoors seems so fresh and new.
skywatchDSCN5984
It's been a mix of weather where I live in terms of rainy, cloudy, sunny.
skywatchDSCN5981
I like the variety of spring days.
skywatchDSCN5971
Hopefully we're past any hard freezes and we probably are.
skywatchDSCN5969
In the part of NC where I live our average last frost day is around mid April.
skywatchDSCN5903
Even on our rainy days the sky has started to be colored with green leaves and flowers.     skywatDSCN5867
We've also had some blue skies which are nice.
skywatchDSCN5890
The shots are a jumbled mix.
skywatchDSCN5882
They were all taken over the past six days.
skywatchDSCN5848
Hard to decide which shots to use this week.
skywatchDSCN5844
I tend to take more pictures during the changing seasons.
skywatchDSCN5823
Particularly in the spring and then fall it seems like the changes happen on a daily basis.
skywatchDSCN5810
The amount of blue sky shots are misleading. There were more pictures I liked on the sunny days.
skywatchDSCN5803
The sky is hidden by the trees in some of these shots but that's the way it is when I look up this time of the year.
