My favorite color for an azalea is the pale lavender. This little one is in my front yard down at the tree line. I started it from an azalea at John and Lindsey's first house.
At least this year it does have about 10 blooms. Year before last it was doing a little better, before we had a real late freeze in the teens. Thought this one was a goner, so right now I am just happy it is still alive.
As normal, I had to get closer.
Someday my azalea will look like this one that I photographed in Knoxville last week.
I have already sold this photo in 2 cards, the Happy Mother's Day and a sympathy card.
