From the front yard

A red azalea at the end of our driveway is in bloom.

Right in front of the house is this Japanese maple bush. The leaves are so delicate.

Then, this kind of fuchsia-colored or purply azalea.

Then a white one that bloomed earlier and is starting to drop its petals. They look pretty, lying on the ground, and the trunk and branches show underneath the foliage.

Here's a view of the three that are in front of the house. We have a pretty bay window in front, and a windmill my dad built next to the door. Some big shells are on the porch, probably from when we lived in Key West, 1967-69.
