My white azaleas are the first to bloom.  You can see in these pics that it was just starting to open up.  Now, they are huge fluffy masses of white.

Fig tree

My fig tree.  Could we please all stop for a moment and send a big “make figs” thought to my tree?  Really if we all send this massive burst of figgy energy to it, perhaps this will be the year it actually produces figs.

Chinese Fringle Flower

And this is my Chinese Fringe flower, looking a bit moody.  I can not recommend this flowering shrub enough.  It is evergreen here in Tennessee and blooms so often, I really have no idea what it’s blooming season is – possibly continuous?  I know you can’t tell with this photo, but there are pretty pink fringe flowers on it, look at this link Chinese Fringe Flower to see how it was blooming in my yard in October 2009!  Isn’t it pretty?!

How about you, how is garden looking this week?

    Tonight’s dinner! Thank you!

    I’ve been taking photos of my fig tree, too, because I’m fascinated with how the little figs appear so soon after it starts to leaf out. I have to be surreptitious about it because I don’t want the squirrels to notice them.

    Your Azaleas are just beautiful. Our should be blooming in another week or so they have a ton of buds on them.
