Botanical Gardens

Ed and I took Crystal to the National Arboretum Saturday to see the Azaleas in bloom. They are quite the show! I learned that all rhododendrons are azaleas, but not all azaleas are rhododendrons!

We got a lot of exercise, walking around the pathways, and ended up at the bonsai exhibit. It was my lucky day, as they were having a bonsai sale, and Crystal bought me a little tree for Mother's Day. I hope I can keep it alive for the next 50 years!

  1. Interesting. I kinda use the word "rhododendron" to mean any plant that does not bloom and is green year round (but not pine). I never use the word "azalea."
