Azaleas Ablaze


The old cemetery where I often go for a walk is "on fire" just now, with all the stunning azaleas in orange, red and yellow in full bloom. 


 


 


You can't really blame me for never reaching "topspeed" on those exercise walks, can you? ;-)

  1. I don't think I've ever seen orange and yellow azaleas, white, red and every shade of pink, but not orange and yellow. And this is so late for azalea, we get them in March-April.
    Sure pretty though.

  2. they are beautiful and the only way i can do a real walk for exercise is to leave my camera home.

  3. These are spectacular! No pinks and purples there, and no white, which I find rather unusual. Here, azaleas and rhododendron have dropped their flowers a few weeks ago already. Unfortunately I didn't have occasion to go to the park when they were at their height, that was when I was still ill.

    1. Forgot to say that we would miss pictures of your town very much if you went for speedy exercise walks!

    2. Thanks Meike. :) And yes, spring always comes a bit earlier (and summer lasts a bit longer) where you live, I think!

  4. I had no idea that azaleas came in such stunning colours...I've only seen the pink ones.
    Your photos are beautiful.

    1. Thanks Virginia. Yes they are amazing, and I'm lucky to live very close to this place so that I can catch them when they're at their very best!

  5. That's the sort of sight you just don't see here on Lewis.
