Flower Friday: Azaleas galore!

When one thinks of colour in reference to my home city Aberdeen, I'm afraid the phrase that comes most readily to mind is 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. ..

But thankfully, every May/June in our Hazlehead Park the Azalea Garden bursts into life, and us poor colour-deprived Aberdonians can for a few short weeks enjoy the sort of vibrant and glorious display which those of you in sunnier climes might take for granted.

To celebrate our friend Rosy's 'Flower Friday', it is my privilege to take you on a visit to Hazlehead.


  1. Bertie, those Azaleas at stunning, and it's good to see you handsome self in amongst such a riot of colour.
    My human wonders if the green plants, in the last but one photo, might be Hostas?

  12. Dear Bertie,

    Thank you for your wishes about my paw. I went on a Walk today and it was mostly fine. At least that is what I am telling my person. Puss? What puss. I don't see any puss.

    Those are very big flower bushes. Did anyone pee on them? That always makes flowers even better!


  13. Oh Bertie, those blooms are most beautifuls!!! I thinks you should take your doggie bed there and camp out ~ then you won't miss a second! (you might have to lets Gail share your beds though ☺)
    Thanks for the tour!
    Ruby ♥

  14. That's a grand new header picture, Bertie. I started to ask which is more beautiful, you or the azaleas but of course you win hands down!
