April Showers bring May Flowers: Blooms we Love

april showers bring may flowers We’re about to debut our summer issue of our magazine, but before we make way for summer fun and coastal lifestyles, we wanted to take a few moments to share with you some beautiful blooms we’ve spotted this spring in conjunction with our “Radiant Orchid”  magazine issue.  All of these beautiful blooms were noticed after we went to print.  Nothing is more beautiful than Southern azaleas. The Fearrington House Inn, Restaurant and Spa in Pittsboro, N.C. makes us want to grab a glass of sweet tea and sit awhile. Fearrington House  Restaurant Fearrington Village has a full-time garden and floral staff. This garden,  named Jenny’s garden, after the owner is a beautiful place for Inn guests to retreat.   We’ll have more on our visit to Fearrington Village soon. Blooms_Fearrington Wrightsville Beach, N.C. is home to Airlie Gardens. These beautiful gardens are located on the Intra-coastal waterway, and are surrounded by Spanish Moss, natural lakes and wildlife. Blooms_AirlieGardens2 Inside the gardens, you will also find this gorgeous glass, bottle house. It’s made from 4,000 glass bottles, and it  is certainly a highlight of the garden tour. Blooms_AirlieGardens J.C. Raulston Arboretum is owned and operated by N.C. State University in Raleigh, N.C. With more than 5,000 plants collected from all over the world on display on 10 acres, you will see a bloom any time of year you go, but the arboretum certainly blossoms in the spring.  No one can resist tulips.  Blooms_J.C.

Katja couldn’t stop photographing all of these beautiful blooms, and she spotted a redbud, too.    spring-blossoms Flowers in Morocco | Photo by Katja Presnal @skimbaco flowers-in-morocco spring-flowers The orchid always captures our attention.
