Not only were the cherries blooming in DC, so were the azaleas. Or at least I called them azaleas. I learned that the proper name for them is rhododendrons. I'm not sure how that works. I guess azaleas are just a type of rhododendron? They seem to be a large family covering plants from small shrubs up to large plants nearing the size of trees.
I think I showed you some of our local
azaleas rhododendrons just the other day. I don't think ours get as full and showy as the ones I saw in DC, but we do alright.
