Earth Day ABC’s

Yeah, that's not a ghost, it's me waving

When I was a kid my favorite kind of book was an alphabet book. You know, A is for…blah blah blah.  So I figured in honor of Earth Day, which, incidentally E is for. I know, I know, I’ve skipped ahead, but let me explain.  For my Earth Day alphabet book, I intend to try (And I emphasize try) and come up with a natural world word and photo for each letter.  So I may choose a plant or perhaps a rock, or even an animal.  It's kind of like another of my childhood faves...animal, mineral or vegetable. Geez I am worried about Q, but that is a ways off right now.  So let’s start…

A is for Azalea.  

I have this colorful flowering shrub circling my yard.  Although it was already in place when I moved in to the house, I have several colors.  It brightens up my spring even on cloudy days, like today.  Azaleas don’t have any sort of smell, but they shed little pollen so they don’t aggravate my allergies which are going crazy right about now. Yup A--it’s for Azaleas. While I'm at it A is also for Apples, but that is in every Alphabet book.  Apples, however, are a big crop in Virginia with apple festivals all over the place in the fall.  

Come back and visit to see my other Earth Day Alphabet Book entries.

We have two azaleas in front of our house in pink and lavender which have yet to bloom, so I really enjoyed seeing yours! Ditto on the allergies!

I have some Azaleas the very same color as yours. They were a Mother's Day gift many years ago. I suffer from allergies too and am thankful they don't add to my suffering and right now they're about the only thing that is blooming in my yard.
Happy Earth Day.
