When I was in Virginia I couldn't help but take photos of my mother-in-law's gorgeous azaleas. I miss them so much when spring arrives. Growing up in the south I would see them erupt into bloom by the hundreds. There were azaleas in almost every yard and they would bloom like there was no tomorrow. I have one in my yard now but it is not quite the herald of spring that I remember fondly and dearly miss. I was so glad to catch them in bloom during our visit to Virginia.
