Eye Candy Friday.

Partly in response to all the favorable comments about yesterday's blue sky blooms and partly because I know many of y'all are expecting snow in the next couple of days, I thought I'd share some more April Eye Candy.

I'm pretty sure the photo I shared yesterday is a wild azalea. Here's that same tree with its neighbor

and a portrait shot of those orange blooms.

These are the azaleas at the front of our neighborhood. I took these photos yesterday morning, anticipating that Masters-focused post.

From this morning's walk, here's the snowball viburnum I shared in Tuesday's March recap (this is what the "green hydrangea" turned into!)

and last - but by no means least - cherry blossoms. These blooms are showing up everywhere right now ... and our church grounds are covered in pink! When I left my small group meeting this morning, the light was just right for the pink

and one more #blueskybloom!

Wishing everyone a bloom-filled blue sky kind of weekend, with light, bright Spring-like thoughts (especially all of you who might see snow instead).

And a special shout-out to Carole who is running for Selectman in her town; tomorrow is election day and I know she appreciates all our support!

I can't believe the viburnum has bloomed already! And the cherry blossoms. We were in DC last weekend and they hadn't come out yet. Those poor bus tour folks! :-) Have a wonderful weekend Mary!

Those blue skies and all those blossoms! It's almost like you live in a fantasy flowerland and not just 800 miles south; I guess those miles make a BIG difference! Happy weekend!

good golly you have some lovely views. Everything is still quite brown but currently the sun is shining and that is all that matters for me at the moment.

I planted an orange azalea last year. It reminds me our my MIL as she had one in her garden. Jealous of your flowers and nice weather.

These photos are fabulous! We had snow again yesterday and I still don't see temps much above 50 for the next week. I know spring will arrive eventually but I wish it would hurry up. Thanks for the election shout out and love, too!

It's no surprise your blossoms are far ahead of ours. Now I look forward even more to the beauty that's coming to my neighborhood, sadly, sans azaleas!

Thanks for posting these photos, Mary. I really need to see blooms. . . because it was 15 degrees F yesterday morning when I let the dogs out, and it's snowing (lightly, thank goodness) this morning.

Thank you for sharing all of these beautiful, colorful blooms! They sure brighten up this cloudy, chilly day!

My azalea bush bloomed in Dec and then: a cold snap took care of that! We probably won't see azaleas around here for a couple weeks. Your photos are lovely and I so much appreciate your sharing them - we need a break from grey skies...
