Azalea Blossoms



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

One of the nice things about Spring on the Plateau of Tennessee is the profusion of azaleas that we can enjoy. These pretty blossoms are from our yard.

Azaleas and rhododendron really do say spring, don't they?

Ginny said...

I would not have recognized the bloom up close like this. Beautiful! Do you have any other colors?

Azaleas are beautiful. I spent many years in the south and always enjoyed seeing the azaleas bloom.
No azaleas here. I don't think they can tolerate the cold winters.
