Exploding Azaleas

I absolutely love the azalea bushes in front of our house. We planted them when we first moved in and they are huge. Joanne is always after me to trim them back, but I just can't do it. The bigger they get, the more incredible they look in the Spring. One of them is actually growing up over the front porch. They are growing together and the colors are blending.
We have 4 vary large one growing right up against the house. They are actually blocking the downstairs windows, but who needs those windows anyways. We have six medium sized azaleas around the sidewalk and down the side of the driveway.
This evening Joanne and I planted 12 more azaleas; 4 white, 4 pink, 2 red, and 2 lavender. Most of them in the back yard. I hope to live long enough to see them get as big as those in front of the house.

I look forward every Spring to see the azaleas bloom. It's like watching God with a brilliant paint brush going to work.
