I like flowers, but no way can I grow them. The azalea bush below has grown near my front door since I moved into my new house in June of 2000. My real estate agent gave it to me as a housewarming present, and it has flowered most years since then. Not bad, for 21 years!
Like their cousin, the rhododendron, azaleas come in a variety of warm colors. Here’s a bush growing by the path down to Snoqualmie Falls. A riot of color, if you ask me.
