Easter Blooms

“Easter Blooms”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

I thought there was a chance that the Easter lilies planted in the garden just might bloom in time for today, but no such luck. The lovely Florida Flame Azalea is taking the lilies place as the Easter bloomer. This azalea just started opening its flowers and is putting on quite a show of gold.



This is only about the third year this plant has been in our garden, and it is doing well. I can hardly wait to see it in a few years when it is bigger. It should really be a standout then.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and is able to spend time with their loved ones. I know that is the most important thing to me – being with my family.

    Ewa, I love yellow in the spring garden. We are unable to grow many daffodils, so having this yellow is somewhat of a substitute.

    I’ve never seen a yellow azalea. This is so pretty and unusual. Thanks for showing this.

    Lovely azaleas! Never seen those before and I have seen a lot of native azaleas at least here in NC.

    We took mom a 12 different daffodil vase for Easter, the aroma was heavenly.

    That is a gorgeous Azalea. I just love the yellow. I bet in a few years it will be breathtaking every spring. Hope your easter was great.

    I hope you had a wonderful Easter! The Florida flame azalea is a great native azalea. Yours is a beauty. When it is large, it will be spectacular!
