The mission home is starting to turn green. You can see the azaleas beginning to bloom.
A flowering pear down the street from the mission home.
A close-up of a pink azalea in our flower bed. Notice the "pine straw" which is used as a ground cover in most flower beds in Georgia. The pine needles are slightly acidic and keep the weeds down. They actually bale the pine needles and then you shake out the bales around the flowers.
