Clusters of red azaleas poke through openings in a wrought iron fence to greet walkers. Azaleas were first brought from Japan to the United States in the 1800's to Magnolia Gardens, just up the river from Charleston. Today many varieties flourish throughout the Lowcountry.


  1. Very pretty flowers. A sign of spring?

  2. I love azaleas, this adorable flower reminds me mommy's house in Brazil!Thanks for these lights and colors to my day! :)
    hugs and happy weekend

  3. Elegant and delicate. Nice focus.
    Have a nice day.

  4. Good to be greeted azaleas through an iron fence the way they always look like water. Thanks for your input didactic with photos recently were surprised that I knew what was Spanish moss, I learned it on my blog.
    Enjoy the spring

  5. very nice. when i see azaleas, i begin to think of the Masters coming up.

  6. Beautiful flowers. I noticed a lot of them in Canada and also in Seoul, two years ago.

  7. The red of the flowers is dazzling, and really jumps off the page against the dark background.

  8. gorgeous colours, perfect dof ... but please tell me this from last year!
    we're still buried in snow, without any spring flowers in sight ...

  9. they sure look beautiful, nice capture.
