Cottage Flora Thursday

I'm joining Tracie at Fishtail Cottage today for Cottage Flora Thursday. http://fishtailcottage.blogspot.com/
 Ya'll head over and check out who else has some blooms to share.

I cannot believe that I took probably more than 30 photos yesterday and all of them came out blurry. These are a few that are just OK. I called myself checking the setting but apprently I didn't look close enough. Sometimes my hands shake too.

The azalea bush is still putting on a show. But the blooms are beginning to fade.

Peaches - well there just won't be any this year. I had a feeling the drought last year would affect the peaches. sad face)

The blueberry bush is loaded. Click to see all those berries. 

I don't know the name of this invasive shrub/tree. They are a nuisance to me except this time of year when they yeild some pretty flowers for the bees. Bees love this.

I'm so glad today is Thur and wish it were Friday. It's been a tough week. I have an enormous amount of work to do so - I'll be around to visit you all as I can today and tomorrow. As you know Fridays are half days for me so I'm not around much on Friday's.

Just saw your post pop up as I was heading back to the kitchen! Nothing more annoying than taking masses of photos and they all come out blurry :-( These photos are great though. Take care. Diane

Ah blueberries. I have terrible handshake too. I found a tri-pod at a garage sale and that helps a lot. Also keep your legs apart and hold your breathe when you snap the shot...forgive me if you know this! hugs♥olive

What a showy azalea bush! Too bad there aren't any peaches.

Must be something in the southern atmosphere, my flower photos did not turn out yesterday either lol....Of maybe we are just giddy from all this lovely spring weather.

Thank you for stopping by today and sharing my silly stories.
Hope you have a great weekend.
