|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.
