Azalea Walk II

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




Baby pine cones


Japanese maples

But this is the Azalea Walk, after all. Where you’ll find soft coral…


dark coral


a garland of pink dotted with vermilion


a soft lavender cloud


and variegated pink.


I’ll end the series the way it began, with one of my favorites…


Hope your day’s going well….

    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.
