It's azalea season and, oh! my! goodness!.....the blooms are awesome. I love, love, love azaleas. They can be the scraggliest looking bush and then, add a little warm weather and rain and VAVOOM! They are gorgeous. Totally an ugly duckling type of plant. And they are so lush with color.
Years ago I had a friend who lived on a couple of acres that looked just like an overgrown lot. Until March! Then it burst into bloom with huge bushes that towered over us, thick with flowers. It was like walking in a fairytale.
My heart just sings with joy at their beauty. I love this time of year!
