If you live in the Houston area and the rain doesn’t get too bad today, you should consider a trip to the River Oaks Garden Club Azalea Trail today. This is one thing my husband and I have done every single year (except one) that we have lived here and we always enjoy it. We like to focus on the houses, because you often get to walk through the main floor in order to get to the garden out back. Sometimes you only get to see the yard and garden. We love to see beautiful homes, and of course the Garden Club ladies have them all spiffed up and beautiful flower (or vegetable – or ???) arrangements in every room (but unfortunately you can’t take pictures inside the houses!). I often love the smallest details the most, like the table arrangements or decorations. It’s a chance to see how the other half lives, as they say! Some of us can only dream!
This is the BACK of a house. How would you like this to be your backyard?!
Just a little fountain for the back of the yard!
An outdoor table set for a lovely party.
Close-up of the tulips on the table.
A small children’s table set for a garden party!
Cute table decorations!
A Tulip tree in bloom! Spring is coming!
This is how I would like MY flowers to look!
Always my husband’s dream feature! This type of fountain reminds him of one from his childhood.
Unusual pool in a newer house and grass unlike the usual in Houston WAY back in the far corner of the large yard.
Our house and backyard! (Just kidding!) Those plantings on the left are azaleas. About three flowers had bloomed! But oh my, when all those and the ones along the back of the yard burst into bloom, what a beautiful sight that will be! Azaleas aren’t always blooming on the Azalea Trail!
Another fun table for an outdoor party!
Yes, my friends are invited over for an Easter garden party in my beautiful yard behind my beautiful mansion!
This house wasn’t even on the Trail but was across the street and had these beautiful flowers blooming in front! So many pretty houses!
We like to have many parties in our numerous outdoor spaces at our home overlooking a country club golf course!! I really did like all the “spaces” and levels at this home, not that there are too many days in Houston that you can sit outside and enjoy such a thing.
Just a relaxing fountain in the pool!
A cute basket of white freesia (we think).
And finally, some azaleas on the Azalea Trail (if only in a bouquet!).
