Azalea time | Manvel, Texas Photographer

In our part of Texas near the gulf coast, the winters are mild and springtime comes early.

Right now the Azaleas are starting to bloom. I planted Azaleas because they were my grandmother’s favorite she even told me what colors to get. It is hard to believe these plants are at least 35 years old.

They bloom their hearts out each and every year and never disappoint me. In March, we tend to have some windy days so sometimes it blows off their blooms. March is usually a rainy month so if the wind does not get the blooms the rain does.

We had a lot of wind and rain last week that destroyed the beauty of my blooms. These pictures were taken in years past.

Have you ever planted a flower or bush in your yard because of your grandmother or mother?

Springtime in Texas is my favorite time of year because the temperatures are perfect and everything is coming alive again.

  1. They bloomed early for me, here in AL….way too early. Last night we had a frost which killed all the blooms. But they were stunning while they were here! People said having azaleas and camellias blooming at the same time was unheard of.
