Beautiful Blackbird azaleas and rhododendrons in a lovely setting. I have quite a few azaleas and am looking forward to them flowering as we're behind you in the north.

Its a Mollis Azalea that my Mum bought for my birthday many moons ago, sadly it has been broken a couple of times but has survived x

O.MG! So beautiful! Is it near where you live BB?

Just around the corner out of the village πŸ’™πŸ’™

What with the magic of your forest walks and animals and now this gorgeous place, you certainly live in a beautiful part of the world BB. The good thing is you know and appreciate it. Enjoy the weekend.RR x

And you also my lovley ... we are having a very rare 3 days off due to Bank Holiday so a few picnics in the van and enjoying our time ...take care RR πŸ’œ

That's the idea πŸ’™

That's gorgeous. Especially welcome because rhodies don't like the chalky soil round here.

Where are you Alberta ... the rhodies here even grow in the forest in abundance πŸ’šπŸ’™

Alberta56 in reply to Blackbird9

I'm in Essex, most of which is covered in a soil called chalky boulder clay. It's hard to grow azaleas, camellias and other plants which like an acidy soil.xxx

Blackbird9 in reply to Alberta56

Not so far from here ... I know the clay stuff you mean it can be horrible stuff it's in certain parts of the forest and they are avoided by me anyway it's just grey gunk πŸ˜‚

Absolutely beautiful.a little piece of paradise πŸ’–thanku BB. Enjoy yr time off x

Thankyou ❀️

Stunning as usual. ❀️ Inspired by your photos we have booked a couple of nights in Lyndhurst in a couple of weeks. With Molly of course. Do you have any recommendations for our short stay?

Blackbird9 in reply to Mooka

Awww how lovley recommendations what is it you need I can certainly help you x Molly will love the walks in the forest

For lunch or coffee Beaulieu Station Rd Hotel the drift bar does sandwiches coffees pints of lager etc ...dog friendly and there is a walk just over the road from the car park there walk up to the train bridge and cross the bridge walk a few yards and go to the left .. views are breathtaking very open forest so you can see forever ...

Head of into Burley the Queens head pub for lunch and have a walk around the village or surrounding forest ..

Hatchett pond is a lovley walk about 45 mins round the pond and there is a farm shop up the road where you can get take away scones and coffee to have as a snack ....

Hawhill enclosure is a lovley walk..lots of hills though ...my family used to have a sawmill around there spent my summers here when the kids were young making panels and riding the tractor 🚜...

If you like flowers and plants spend the day at Exbury Gardens dog friendly cafe to have lunch etc

Bolderwood deer sanctuary at Rhinefield is a lovley walk dogs on lead during the walks due to the deer ... there's a picnic area and look out spots for the deer ...

If you choose to go off grid be careful unless you have a phone with good reception to keep yourself tracked x

If I think of anything else I will add it here

It's sad how long they last very short but when in bloom just beautiful 😍

Beautiful Irene, possibly my favourite colour of azalea/dwarf rhododendron. I had a well established one in that colour for many years but it sadly died last year. My gardener thought that dry soil was the cause. Have asked hubby to keep the others well watered this year. Thank you for showing this one xx

Izb1 in reply to CDPO16

Thats so sad, I hope hubby keeps it well watered now as its been so dry. Below is my latest edition and hope the cats stop digging that area up x

Another beauty Irene and very healthy looking. He's been out with the hose pipe a few times so far

Beautiful photo!Is it Exbury Gardens?

I live in the NE corner of Hampshire so not too far away from your neighbourhood.

We have been on a few day trips to Lyndhurst, Lymington, Milford on sea and to Hiller Gardens, near Romsey, especially these last two years.

So many beautiful places to go!

Thanks for sharing your fantastic photos with us

Hi no I live in Beaulieu Enclosure which is private land to the Montagues ... This is an area just down from where I live ...

Exbury Gardens is about 5 miles up the road to Hilltop and head towards the local beach ⛱️

The forest certainly has her beautiful spots nice to know your a neighbour πŸ˜€

Gorgeous. Picture Suitable for a jigsaw My rhododendron and Azalea are just beginning to bloom x
