Spring is springing here and the flowers are peeking out from around the house and in the woods.  Here is a double whammy....get one.....get'em both.

Azaleas, both.

The top one is the good ol' Formosa. An absolutely astounding sight, when in full bloom.

The other is a wild azalea. Comes in lots of colors. Hard to propagate, but easy to transplant. Spindly little ugly bush, but, as you can see, beautiful flowers.

Hey Jwood.  Welcome to the Forestry Forum. Glad to see you posting and joining the melee. Your half right on your first post  too and picked a good thread to make it on.   8)

DanG !! You got it, right out of the chute.  I thought the second picture may keep the thread open a couple of days but you hit the nail on the head.  You must do some Woods Walking.  ::)

Bud Man, the air is full of the aroma of Honeysuckle. I'll bet it won't be long before it shows up here too. ;D

Here's a good site for azaleas.  :P

   My mum told me that one of the things my dad and his brother used to do was follow the spring up the coast. Started down where you are, ended up in Maine. I dunno how often they did it (he died when I was 1 so I never knew him)- but even once would be awesome. :)  lw
