Lavender Azalea

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.

My mother's favorite color was lavender. This is my first Mother's day without her. Your photos are really beautiful - love the "freckles" on the blooms.

That is a very special Azalea! I would like to have one of every color available!

Gorgeous! The only type of azalia I have seen up here are the pink ones but they must have them at the local nursery. I'm going to make a mental note on my next visit. These will look wonderful on your cards.

It is a beautiful color. Not sure I have seen it before.

Connie said...

Oh, lavender is so pretty. I have bright pink and almost red. Hurray for all the beautiful colors. The cards would be beautiful.

Mary said...

These are gorgeous! Purple is my favorite, too or the pale pinks. I'm not so crazy about the real reddish ones.

Very delicate looking Leedra!

All of the pictures are great, Leedra. But--I think you chose the right one for your photography site.

Hugs,

Lovely Azalea. Ours have buds, but it's too early for blossoms.

Your azaleas look sweet. I didn't know they came in lavender. Gorgeous pictures.

Beautiful flowers. I wish more were hardy in our cold climate.

I love azaleas, they are so beautiful. This lavender one is exceptionally beautiful, I agree with you. :)

These azaleas are beautiful. I agree that do look grogeous in your greeting cards.
