Hi Stacy:

Yea we had that snow here also and that was the day that we took Abbey to Auburn, AL for her surgery. I believe you're about a hour from Auburn if I'm not correct. I'm in Macon, GA and its beautiful here also. The pool is clean and read for it to hit the 80's and stay there--won't be long at all.

Beautiful picture. Love outside pictures alot. Wish I could take all 4 out and take some pictures. We bought a new camera last fall when we went to Europe. I took 4500 pictures in Europe--lol.

looks like azaleas to me.

Yes they are azaleas. Our whole neighborhood is covered with them. I love it in the spring when they are all blooming. Linda, we are about 45 min - an hour from Auburn. My sister lives in Tyrone GA, and my daughter and her husband did live in Atlanta but moved to Newnan GA last year. We visit GA quite alot and love the area. How is Abbey doing? I hope things are continuing to impove for her.

What a stunning picture.

A note about Azaleas:

Azaleasare very common shrubs. In the spring, blooms burst forth and cover the green shrubs with their purple or pink petals. However, Azaleas are poisonous plants for dogs and may even cause death. If your dog has become poisoned by eating Azaleas, the symptoms are diarrhea, excessive salivating, vomiting, low blood pressure, and weakness. Acute poisoning can cause coma or cardiac arrest leading to death.

Thanks for letting us know that about Azaleas. I had no idea. Maggie and Roxie are not normally allowed in the front yard where the Azaleas are due to it being close to the street. I only took them out there while I was taking pictures. Thanks again Pauline. Do you know of other common plants or shrubs that could be dangerous?

I have to watch next doors Clematis, I trim that back, it drops a lots of twigs in the autumn. I took all the Bluebells out of my garden. I have a very large Rhododendron and I trimmed all the branches near the grown off so he wouldn't chew them.

Here is a site with lots more plants to avoid.
