It's beautiful.
But, the blue one below. I want, badly.
I think I might have wrestled that person who got the last three at the nursery.

You pictures are always so amazing. The azaleas always remind me of Durban, where they grow in great profusion. With your love of flowers you would have an amazing time in the Eastern Cape. We have plants flowering here at all times of the year. It is autumn now, but in some places it is like spring

Gorgeous color. There is a type of Japanese Azalea that is blooming here right now that is orange colored!

One of my favorite flowering shrubs. I'm not very good at growing them, but I love to admire these evergreen shrubs.
Happy WW.

Thanks. The 'Girard' series of Azaleas is a personal favorite. They really have bright colors.

Annelie, that's funny but I wasn't in a fighting mood.

Max_e, I would to visit your country someday. It is on my list.

Kala, thanks. The orange ones are a little unusual and always a pleasure to see.

Driller, don't give up. Azaleas are easy to grow. They need some sunlight to grow properly.
