Come with me, down the path, to see one of the most beautiful places
in Shreveport this time of year.
Acres of azaleas like this native variety which has a heavenly scent.
George Tabor and Fomosa's
Big ole snowball bushes with dozens of delicate little flowers clustered all together.
Bronze statues amid the gardens add an extra dimension of visual interest.
There are still lots of buds to open and this weekend will probably be peak viewing.
Loveliness every where.
Red and green Japanese maples.
The Camelias were just sweetness itself.
Let’s continue down the walkway a little farther……..
Delicious Wisteria….I have always loved saying that word…..Wisteria.
It seems so Southern, the way it rolls off the tongue.
It conjures up images of front porches, sweet tea and
ladies visiting as they sat in the swing.
I love words that evoke a pleasant memory, feeling or mental picture.
Greybeards are scattered over the grounds.... a perfect backdrop for the statue.
These sweet faced pansies won’t last long once the weather heats up for good.
I hope you enjoyed our walk. The weather was cloudy and a little on the chilly side the afternoon we visited. I have a new camera and couldn’t wait to practice…….
and you can tell……I need lots and lots of practice!
But I learned some things and hopefully, soon I will show some improvement!
