Azaleas Peak in South Georgia

Azaleas are synonymous with spring in the South. The annual North Carolina Azalea Festival in Wilmington is one of many Southern celebrations of the flowering shrub, drawing hundreds of thousands for events including a parade, concerts, home tours and pageants. Timing is key when planning a visit to azalea hot spots such as the National Arboretum in Washington D.C., as the plants’ beauty is in full bloom for just a few weeks. Below are a few shots from our Easter trip to Brunswick, Georgia during peak azalea season.
