April Flowers

My parents had a lot of azaleas on our property back in Northern VA. They had about 3 acres of land there, full of azaleas and trees. But I've never seen an azalea like this white one bloom so full and amazing that I can remember.

The iris strikes me as being a funny flower. They look gorgeous from a distance, but get up close and they're not all that breathtaking. The pretty colored petals are flopped over like rabbit ears and their full glory is somewhat diminished. The previous owners planted these purple and yellow ones on the side of our driveway. Some days there are more and some days there are less flowers in bloom.
