Amazing azaleas

pict0142One of the reasons I love Lancaster County in the springtime is the prevalence of mature azaleas in my neighborhood. The range of bold colors, paired with the clouds of dogwoods in pink and white, just takes my breath away. I make a point to drive down President Avenue as often as possible, just to drink it all in. My own azaleas are understated in comparison, but no less thrilling. They were slips from my grandmother’s magnificent bushes along the Loyalsock in Lycoming and make me smile in memory each year when they bloom again.
