The azaleas are blooming! Now that the azaleas are in bloom it’s stating to look like Spring is really here. Spring is my favorite season, so it makes me especially happy when things start blooming.
Azaleas thrive in the southeast, so we have a lot of them in our yard, and are considering adding more. I’d like to find a yellow azalea bush. We have white, and various shades of pink - pale pink all the way to hot pink, but no yellow. Yet.
I just love azaleas. I think they’re so pretty, and they’re some of the first really colorful bushes to bloom here. I love that there are so many different varieties of azaleas, and that the flowers are different sizes and colors.
According to Wikipedia, azaleas were first cultivated outside of greenhouses in Charleston, South Carolina. Since South Carolina is my home state it makes me especially happy to have so many azalea bushes in bloom.
So what about you? Do you like azaleas? Are they in bloom where you are?
