Bright Pink Azaleas

Saw some bright pink azaleas today. The kind where the when the bush flowers you see nothing but pink…the petals completely cover the foliage. Azaleas are a bush that most of the year does nothing for me, but when they flower, they are spectacular. They brighten my mood, and allow me to ignore whatever the weather is doing, or whatever is happening in the world (including, today, the shooting of an as yet unknown number of students at Virginia Tech). For just one moment, beauty and life is allowed to come to the forefront, to be the center of my attention.
