Dogwood and azalea time is my favorite season in North Carolina. I love it when the days get warm and the flowering shrubs and bulbs start to show their glorious colors. This large azalea is at the edge of the woods in our back yard. They like the dappled sunlight.
This shrub is loropetalum, which is also blooming profusely in my back and front yards. The flowers look like purple fringe.
Everything looks so green in my yard all of a sudden. (Think of the Masters tournament images...nothing beats springtime in the South!)
