Azaleas, dogwoods and blooms

The dogwoods are not quite as pretty this year , but are still blooming.   My azaleas are mostly in full bloom.

gotta get the planters on the fence filled with probably petunias

quite a few colors mixed in the border
I left the cement leaf I made last year out all winter,  I used a squash leaf to cast this one.
this white azalea has always been loaded with blooms,  the white ones seem to be very hardy and always out perform some of the others.
I love this area in spring.  Doesn't last long though
I have several of these smaller ones and will be digging them up and planted eslewhere

view out of my front door
My pink dogwood ,  my very favorite
not quite finished filling out
My favorite shot of the tree with the sun
Have to grow most of the petunias in pots so they wil not get eaten
