Native Piedmont Azaleas

Rhododendron canescens

These are just a few of the Native Azaleas in Scotty's yard that were planted there over 50 years ago by his great grandmother. Also known as Piedmont Azaleas, they are native to Georgia and most of the Southeastern United States. Their colors range from white to light pink to dark pink, while some others are even tinted with yellow and orange. These particular plants were originally found in the nearby woods of Hard Labor Creek State Park (before it was such), and then transplanted around the house.

Spring Time

Spring is here! Well, I guess it has been for a while now, since Winter never really was. Nonetheless, I am not complaining, as the weather has been absolutely beautiful. So here's what's been sprouting up and blooming in my garden as of late...

 Back in late-February, I found a Swallowtail on some of the parsley.

 Camellia japonica
