We were at Mother’s this weekend and she has the oldest and biggest azalea bush you’ve ever seen! The swallowtail butterflies love it.
Have you ever seen the orange flame azaleas blooming in the mountains in middle springtime?? They are gorgeous! If you do see the orange blooms, take notice and enjoy. They aren’t very plentiful. This is a photo of the blooms up close.
Check out my flower page to see more pretty blooms.
Are you in need of springtime images for your graphic designs?? Check out my SmugMug site to download photos starting at $3.50.
