Azalea Walk

Two-tone

If you ever get to the D.C. area in early May, do the Azalea Walk in the National Arboretum. The azaleas are just about every color, and tended carefully. We were a little late this year, so missed the biggest display, but there was still plenty to see.

I had to de-saturate this one, the color was so intense. Have never seen this color azalea anywhere else.

The Azalea Walk is mostly an informal path through a wooded area, but there’s also a small formal garden.

More tomorrow….

    The orange azalea is absloutely fantastic. I have never seen them like that. Really “wow”. Looks like a very beautiful place indeed.

    • I think the yellow-orange azalea is originally from South America. May be hard to grow or really expensive, because I’ve never seen it anywhere else either. The azalea in my sidebar is the same variety, taken last year.

    Beautiful flowers Ms Pearl. Thank you for sharing. I especially love the orange colored one. I haven’t seen that one here in Minnesota.

    Exquisite! Maybe some day enroute to/from Fort Myers, I’ll make a detour and join you on that walk!
