my azaleas are in full bloom and though each year i marvel at their beauty, photographically, their thick green stands in competition with their vibrant pink. this year, the azaleas on the side of my house grew thin and wispy, a disappointing result of washing the house last summer. as it turns out, their flowering is very sweet and, given a bit more isolation, the blooms that so make me smile pop just right!
