Azaleas Blooming, US National Arboretum
I was there just yesterday and in addition to the azaleas, rhododendrons, dogwoods, bluebells and may apples were also blooming. It was such a lovely walk through the collection.
Since azalea bloom times are weather dependent, the Arboretum keeps track of bloom progress and reports it on the website - it's a good thing to check the website before you venture out (http://usna.usda.gov/Gardens/collections/azaleablossom.html)
