|Rhododendron occidentale - Western Azalea|
Mmmmmmm.....it's one of my favorite times of the year. The Western Azaleas in my yard are blooming and their delicate sweet scent is wafting through the air. Proof for sure that Spring is here to stay and Summer will be just around the corner. These lovelies grow in the shade at the forest edge and practically glow with their gentle splashes of yellow and pink. It makes me want to drop the house work and take off on a leisurely hike through the woods.
