“And in the woods a fragrance rare
Of wild azaleas fills the air,
And richly tangled overhead
We see their blossoms sweet and red.”
–  Dora Read Goodale
Spring Scatters Far and Wide

Azaleas are in bloom, and our garden hosts several different varieties and shades of red and pink.  The wild flame azaleas in the woods, however, are yellow.

  1. I fear my azalea did not make it through the winter — but given that everything is so slow around here to emerge (my pussy willow still is “in bloom”) I am keeping fingers crossed that it remains dormant rather than dead!
