  2. I wondered how far south azaleas grew. There is a big festival here in April near Wilmington.

  4. I like the idea of a ravine. Amazing what water carves from the land. And tons of azaleas are an added bonus. Nice! Thanks.

  8. Making blog rounds and waving hello. It's almost warm enough to get out and enjoy gardens again. Though we're still having frost at night, we're getting there.
