My Blooming Azalea Grove

If you're in or around Germantown, Maryland tomorrow, May 21st, be sure to stop in at White's Nursery for their annual Spring Open House Sale from 9am to 5pm. Their collection of azaleas and rhododendrons is amazing.

Last year, I decided to design a new garden along two sides of the carriage road between my Summer House and my stable. I wanted to add lots of colorful azaleas - a variety of unique specimens in shades of pink, orange, crimson, and white. I already have many azaleas growing and flourishing in this area, but I wanted to expand this azalea grove and add many, many more. We planted at least 350 azaleas down the road - most of them from White's Nursery. And this year, they're blooming magnificently.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
