My hometown of Muskogee hosts what is considered one of America's finest spring events, the Azalea Festival. This month long festival draws visitors from around the world to Honor Heights Park, which is nestled into hills overlooking the city. The park boasts over 40 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens abounding in azaleas, dogwoods and redbud trees (Oklahoma's state tree). The park hosts a staggering 625 varieties of azaleas in over 30,000 plants! Truly, it is a sight to see.
And speaking of azaleas, here is a picture of my pink azalea bushes...
...can you say, "Houston, we have a problem"
Only one little bud opened up and lived all by itself for days, until finally....other blooms emerged...
and a trio of garden friends from Decorator's Friend
a sweet Bunny.....
and the cutest Chipmunk........
Isn't this little trio so cute? I found these at Decorator's Friend, one of my favorite online shopping sources for cute as can be garden items like these and tons of decorative collectibles and home decor. This shop has a hundreds of items at very reasonable prices. I can't wait to show you all some of my other finds from Decorators Friend.
This beautiful polychrome brown transferware plate by Johnson Brothers is entitled Azalea gardens. To me, it epitomizes the types of views at Honor Heights Park and it's azalea gardens in all their Spring glory.
