Gardening 102

Another picture blog! This time it's of the beautiful flowers that are in bloom. I took my dog for a walk over in Ardsley Park. Ardsley Park is considered Savannah's "first Suburb". It is an area that is all residential, and primarily high end living. I live about a 15 minute walk from Ardsley, and when you are in it- you don't feel the city vibe at all. It's a beautiful escape from the downtown energy.

Below are some examples of the vibrant Azelea bushes that dominate Savannah in April:

My dog:

Crowded out the sidewalk:

Many of the homeowners in Ardsley have their properties enclosed by tall walls...a secret garden type of look. I love some of the garden entrances:

Some pretty little cottage garden houses:

And then there are bigger houses...

There is a yellow viney plant that some of the houses are using. Its not forsyth...its something else. It's very pretty!

Here is a pretty use of the yellow plant and the Azeleas:

And these are some beautiful sidewalks:

This is a cool tree...It's like Hydrangias as a tree?

Heres a beautiful tree with pink rose blooms. I dont know what it is...the tree is very sprawling so it wont work on my property. But I love it.

The flower on the tree:

Another cool tree:

One of the street medians:

A castle house. Looks strange in Ardsley Park...but I am strangely attracted to castle houses.

And Savannah is not complete without Wisteria. I couldnt find a good example of it being used on a house, this will have to do:

    These are just wonderful! I think the yellow flower trained across the entry to the house is a Lady Banks rose. The hydrangea looking tree is probably a Viburnum, the kind commonly called "snowball bush". The beautiful pink flowered tree looks like an ornamental cherry. Oh, I've got to visit Savannah in the spring sometime!

    wow joan I think you are right on! It was confirmed that the yellow is a climbing rose...and there are several varieties of cherry tree in bloom the pink probably is a cherry tree. And the snowball bush...really does look like its name!

    Beautiful pics. Just wanted to mention that wisteria also can be yellow. And the pink flowered tree sure looks like an ornamental cherry. If there isn't much fruit on it in July, definitely ornamental.
