Today I'm joining the Outdoor Wednesday party at A Southern Daydreamer.
One of our friends sent us this picture last week.
It's official. There's nothing left of Alex Box Stadium. I posted a few weeks ago that it was in the process of being demolished. So sad. My friend summed it up, "Wow…brings a tear to the eye doesn’t it? How appropriate that the skies are dark in the background. The baseball gods had to shed a tear over this too." For those that don't know Alex Box is the baseball stadium at LSU. Last year the team moved into their new, multi-million dollar facility, the "New" Alex Box Stadium. When August & football season gets here the real Alex Box will be a parking lot.
On to happier things. We've actually had some really great weather the last several days! Maybe spring is going to be here soon!
The Camellia's have been the first to bloom. I was worried about them because we had a colder than normal winter. At one point I was scared that everything in the yard was dead. I also have a white Camellia bush but the majority of the blooms were blown off by the hurrican force winds we had this weekend. I hate that it happened but these are my favorite so I'm glad they didn't blow away! I don't know what the proper name is but when we bought them the lady called them "Peppermint Camellia's".
The Pizzazz (Lorapetalum) are blooming too.
These are one of my favorite plants. They look so pretty the majority of the time. I love the way the leaves look really green part of the year & then they change to red & purplish at other times.
I'm really, really hoping that this means spring is around the corner! I'm ready to swim!!!!!
