Awesome Azaleas

It’s Azalea blooming time. I’m a touch late on getting this posted, but you should still have time to see these guys. Don’t wait much past this week though!
So, let’s get right to it. There are several Azaleas is bloom ranging from an almost white to dark pink color. Also in the pink color are the cultivated Rhododendrons. They are looking quite spectacular right now. Most notably however are the Flame Azaleas. These beautiful shrubs have a bloom color that ranges from light orange to a deep reddish-orange. Very striking. Let’s take a look at a couple of pics!
