I went on the Azalea Trail here in Houston. Azaleas, genus Rhododendron bloom in the Spring and a local garden club hosts tours of 8 homes and museums where you can view the flowers in all their glory. All of these pictures were taken at Bayou Bend, the most spectacular stop on the tour. My pictures don't really capture what it is like to see these flowers and these colors everywhere. A little color and sunshine for all of you still dealing with the cold and the snow.
