From Dad’s Garden: Huge Azaleas

My dad (who will be 90 years old on his next birthday) has a back garden that is absolutely full of flowers and blooming trees and shrubs right now.  He lives about 30 miles away, and everything is on a different growth timetable than where we live, so that in the Spring everything blooms there about two weeks ahead of here.  We paid him a visit today, and I photographed some of his azalea blooms which are huge, at least twice as large as ours.
