Here are a few pictures from our yard:
We've had rain all week, so the flowers are a little 'beat down' from the rain. The first is one bush of numerous azaleas currently in bloom. I only snapped this one, but we also have white, light pink, and lavender.

I had not heard of wild azaleas until we moved here to North Carolina. We did not plant them; some were here when we bought the property. Now, they are scattered throughout our yard. They aren't bushes, but trees, and are loaded with rich apricot-colored blossoms.

This is a lavender hybrid rhododendron. Each flower cluster looks like a bouquet of azaleas. We also have many bushes of wild rhododendrons growing all along the sides of our creek, but these won't be in bloom until next month.

Now, if I can just get the chipmunks to co-operate, I'll post some pictures of the cute little munchkins in the next few days.
