I have four varieties of azalea in my yard (that I can recognize). I posted pics of the light pink and lavender ones last night. I had taken a shot of the dark pink and white ones at the same time and in the same shot and tried to load those also, but it was too much for my poor little Razor -- the quantity of pixels pixellated it, or something and every time I tried to post the shot I the old "this file is too big to send" message. So here they are:
My favoritest azalea in the world is the blood red one -- don't know what it's called -- every spring I'm tempted to root out our lessor unpreposessing plants and replace them with the blood-red ones, which would give the house a crisper look; I'd also replace the ugly old door with a sharp bright blood-red door (brass hardware and kickplate) protected by a clear glass storm door...well, that's all for when we win the lottery...you know, the one we don't play.
These bushes are in our front yard. I can't take any credit for them -- they were here before we moved in and unlike the roses I haven't done anything to them since. (Perhaps that's why they're doing so well?) However, let's give it up for camera phones, without which this blog just wouldn't exist.
