Three years ago when I visited Bayou Bend, the only stop along Houston’s annual Azalea Trail that interested me, there definitely was a trail.
What a bummer!
Fortunately, our weather has been kinder this winter. So when I once again broke through my 10-mile comfort radius and made the drive into Houston, I was relieved to see lots and lots and lots of azaleas.
Sidebar: I couldn’t help but laugh when a guy said to his wife and friends, “Yep, there are a lot of pink flowers. And just more of the same the rest of the way.”
He definitely was right in his assessment: Pink was the predominant color in the gardens.
Whether it bee azaleas . . . .
Or camellias . . . .
Tulips . . . .
Or even the budding trees, that lighter shade of red made it seem kind of like Valentine’s Day (in a very feminine way).
I think that Cupid was tickled pink!
