I love Azaleas, they are so bright and beautiful, I smile when I see them blooming.  As soon as we bought our house I began planting them.  Do I now have masses of blooming flowers?  No, mine, for the most part, are still small, blooming sporadically and looking a bit woebegone.  Mac feeds them, we water them, I talk to them, but still they look a bit sad.
We did our morning walk through our neighborhood today and I took some pictures of my neighbor's Azaleas.  Obviously they know something I don't know. :(

Just depends how long I have to spare watching!

  3. Beautiful. Here in England they come out in May when all the leaves are on the trees. I'm told they like lime (acid) soil but I'm guessing you already have that around where you are.

  4. Azaleas and Dogwood are among our first flowers of spring. Next comes Wisteria.

  5. Have you ever been to Callaway Gardens to see them?
    I love azaleas!
