While everyone is focusing on the cherry trees around the Mall, there’s another great floral sight all throughout the DC area: Azaleas. I saw a few good purple ones in Falls Church this weekend, but over the coming week or two, we’ll see magenta, purple, pink, white and every manner of color in between. I love driving up Military Trail in North Arlington this time of year, as the owners of the houses there put on a floral fireworks show with all their azaleas.

This azalea is my newest one, planted this weekend. Should be peak long about Thursday or so.

    I so miss the blooms all over the city and surrounding areas (Takoma Park for example). It covers the whole metropolitan area with a colorful backdrop of beauty. Ah Spring in Washington is truly marvelous.
