Wake Up Wild Azalea

I was both surprised and inspired by the discovery of this beautiful wild flower blooming on our property.  I saw it among the briars and bushes which thickly covered the slope leading down to the river.  I didn’t really know its name, but after looking in my wildflower book, I was thrilled to know it is a wild azalea.

I never know what surprises we will have when we walk through the woods in the spring.
