Garden Lake Part 2 - Azaleas

I could not even begin to tell you how many azaleas are on this property...I would say 5,000+ easy!!! They are everywhere you look. There are also native azaleas and rhododendrons. Azalea Naitve Azalea (aren't the colors unreal!)

I am not familiar with the Native Azalea. I must have me one. It doesn't even look like an azalea.

Wow. I'm still fairly new to liking azaleas: they can look a bit out of place in some English gardens, but they look stunning where you are.

Oh my ~ how gorgeous are those colors. How wonderful to be able to walk around in such beauty.

Becca - I like the bative azalea the best...especially the coral one!

EB - I do love azaleas...BUT the problem with them is that they bloom ONCE a year for abour 2-4 weeks. The other 48 weeks a year they are just green leafy shrubs! But they show they put on when they bloom is wonderful. Is they bloomed more than a few weeks I could assure you that the entire southern US would be covered in them!

FlowerLady - I wish I could take all of my blogger friends there to visit!!! How great would that be! Our garden club is going to be having a tour of Garden Lake next year. So if you are down around Mobile at that time please come :)
