Color Your World

Sometimes the most common flowers, make the most impact:


















Take the "lowly" azalea....so common, yet so bold and impactfull !




Don't forget about them, they're in your yards, free for the pickin'!


If you know me, you know that I'm a BIG fan of Blue and White Spode...











Notice anything different? I decided to add white azaleas to the pink...



Do you like them better with white? I couldn't decide...









I'm not a big fan of pink, but today, the sight of these vibrant flowers put a big smile on my face!



Join the tablescaping party going on at Susan's!

Beautiful! I like them both! I am not a pink and blue fan either, so you are not going to believe my table..really out on a limb for me! But I couldn't resist the bargain!

This tablescape is absolutely stunning. The pink and blue colors pop right out of the picture. I really love it.

The blue and white with the azaleas looks great together. I don't have any azaleas. Use to, but they were destroyed when we enlarged our pond.

Rose, they look gorgeous in those beautiful blue and white vases. I love to use azaleas in vases - like you said, they make such a statement, and they are free. Love the little one tucked into the blue and white shoe. Such a special touch. laurie

Oh my goodness - GORGEOUS! And I see what you can do with a camera and photo help - I love the one with the fade all around the flowers. I think I like the all pink and you sure do like the blue plates. Really nice Rose.

I had never the idea to combine this azaleas with blue-white china but the effect made me speachless,. It is so beautifull and full of contrast but very harmonious. Outstanding pretty.
Greetings, Johanna
