Default Azalea Festival Pictures

We have an azalea festival every spring about an hour from here...and I have so many pictures of me growing up in front of those flowers. It's become a springtime tradition to go up there while they're blooming and walk around and take pictures of them. When Dad called me last weekend and said he wanted to go I was excited! These are the pictures we took Sunday.





The two above are pictures of my husband and youngest daughter (she just turned 1)...my other kids were off riding horses Sunday so we only had the one to take pictures of. haha





The two above here are me and Abby. We're kindof hams.















The rest of the pictures are here: Azalea Festival Pictures

I love azaleas! My teen years were spent in an area where an azalea festival was also held and I think about it every Spring. DC's cherry blossoms are nice too but to me they don't compare to the azaleas. And as for your Abby, well, there are some things more beautiful than azaleas, I see.

The flowers are gorgeous. I'm still waiting for all the flowers to start blooming up here, and I think the only flowers I've seen are the crocuses.

Your little girl is absolutely adorable.

I love the picture in which you stepped back and photographed little Abby in front of the Azalea bush that looks giant! Great composition

*blushes*

Thank you so much everyone!! I LOVE this festival!! I have so many pictures of my sister and I over the years in front of those bushes. I had forgotten about it till we got down there, that we had always taken pictures in front of them. I just happened to have my camera in my van because my older girls had had soccer games the day before.

Thank you so much for the compliments everyone. It was a really fun day!

Hello Missy...thank you for sharing your wonderful photos with us here. I think I have to agree with Brighid...my favorite is the one with you and your daughter and the flower tuck behind her ear.

Nice photos, Missy Jo!

I like the one of your daugther looking at her arm and I agree with Hans about the composition of lots of flowers and a small girl

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."

Very nice pictures of some very nice flowers.

You have a cute daughter, and my favourite of your pics are probably the one with a small happy child in front of a sea og pink flowers.

Thank you everyone! She is kinda cute isn't she? She's a little imp!

The picture of us both with her having the flowers tucked behind her ear is my favorite too. I use it as an av at various places online. The pictures turned out much better than I expected them to. Every time I see them I'm startled at how pretty they are...I'm not usually that great a photographer. I can take a pretty picture here and there, but these turned out better than I expected.

Thank you all for enjoying them with me.
