Pink Saturday.... October Blooms in Biloxi...

We went camping (we call it camping... we're in our camper!) in Biloxi, Mississippi the 3rd week of October this year... When we pulled into our luxury campsite... we were surrounded by these...
Azaleas
beautiful... beautiful... PINK...
they were everywhere... all over the grounds.. aren't these guys suppose to bloom in the spring!?  yet here they are near the end of October...
and just for good measure...
a pretty, PINK Camellia... blooming right along side of the Azaleas...

sure wish we could grow these (any time of year...)
down here in French Lique...

I'm joining Beverly for Pink Saturday... drop by and see who else is show PINK!

Hello Dixie
We've met before. Might have been PS or Blue Monday,but I know we met.
I've enjoyed your last few posts. I think your friend Candy and I have the same hair colour!!
We drove through Biloxi a long time ago. Wish we could have spent more time in the South. Such wonderful friendly folks just like you.
Oh and don't worry too much about those wrinkles, but I get where your going with the whole "aging" thing. I will be 56 in March. More and more "pretty lines" are appearing.
Happy Weekend DIxie.
Love Claudie from Canada

Hello Dixie,
How wonderful to get to look at some gorgeous blossoms! It is cold and windy here in Michigan and believe me, all the flowers are long gone!

You live in one of my most favorite states! I have family there and used to live there, too.
Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Bet that travel trailer is fun. I would enjoy one of those because I could take my winkies.

Hi Dixie..I can't believe those are blooming!! You are so lucky. I have a yard full of dried up leaves out here on the Jersey Shore.
Have a happy Pink Saturday...and a very Happy Thanksgiving too.

Don't you just loooove pinterest!? But that doll head on the tree? Disturbing! :)

We're having a very dark, gloomy, rainy day here in Ohio and your pink flowers cheered me up and reminded me that sooner or later, it will once again be Spring. Thanks!

Hi Dixie,

Thanks for visiting my blog! I never imagined that Azaleas could bloom except in the Spring, how strange! But very pretty, and what a wonderful backdrop for your camping trip. Have a great weekend!

Dixie...my favorite of all these PINKS is the Camilla...I just bought one myself that blooms in the fall. I believe there is one that blooms in the spring and one that blooms in the fall...maybe yours is a Fall one. Or, maybe you just got lucky and it bloomed again because it loves you! :) A great PINK post! ~CC Catherine
