Beverley Hills Beauties

April 16, 2012




Spring has come a few weeks early here in Virginia.  It is the most beautiful time of year in my little hilly and woodsy neighborhood.




Azaleas and dogwoods thrive under old towering oaks that make the soil acid-rich.  The  mature azaleas are often massed together and the pink, coral and red blooms are real show-stoppers.




I had to also snap some of my favorite little Beverley Hills cottages with gardens at their best.








This shady enclave of older homes in Alexandria, Virginia is just north of Old Town, west of Del Ray and  only 15 minutes outside of Washington, D.C.  And we’ve got a stellar “walk score”.


Come take a stroll and get a healthy dose of ~pink~

    Thanks for the stroll down memory lane Jean! There’s no place like Alexandria neighborhoods in the spring!


  2. I grew up in the (deep) south so Spring has always been my favorite time of year…azaleas and dogwoods galore. Frederick, MD is all a-bloom too! Such a joy to see all the colors and flowers in full bloom…

    I agree! I, too, live in Beverley Hills and absolutely adore the azaleas in the Spring! They are truly magical! Hope to see you at the “Tree Lighting” on Sunday. 😉 If the winter won’t give us such beautiful landscape… Best to improvise.
