Welcome back to the Azalea Walk at the National Arboretum. There are other lovelies there, besides azaleas….

    Lovely photos – I bet they all smell beautiful 🙂 I love the variagated pink ones 🙂

    I didn’t know that azaleas didn’t have a scent. Well they sure are beautiful anyway. I also didn’t know that they came in so many colors.

    I’ve been to the Arboretum many years ago and they had a wonderful exhibit of bonsai. Do you know if that is still there?

    • Azaleas are evergreen, no matter how cold it gets here, and then they have these beautiful flowers. Smelling good is probably asking too much. 😉

      As far as I know, the bonsai collection is still there. It’s amazing.

    I noticed this about the smell. It is surprising. But they look so lovely. I like the lavender ones a lot as well.

  5. Purty! I like the last two the best.

    Spectacular series of shots, Carole … they put a smile on my face and in my heart this cold wet day! Can’t complain too bitterly. Spring is finally here – tiny buds forming on the Peonies and the daffodils were in all their glory at the cottage.
