A is for Azalea

Today is the first day of the 2012 A-Z Blog Challenge.

I love this azalea plant. It was given to me because my family knows I prefer plants and shrubs to cut flowers. I hate to see flowers die, and plants and shrubs can bring me years of enjoyment. It’s a shame we can’t leave these to grow outside in Canada but they won’t survive our harsh winters. I haven’t tried planting them outdoors for the summer and bringing them inside in the fall, but I’m thinking about it.

Those of you who live in the south are so lucky. Right now, I’m in South Carolina and azaleas are blooming everywhere. For me, I’ll have to be satisfied with my little plant.

What about you? Cut flowers or plants?
