Spring Flowers Come to Astoria

Azaleas bloom at the Astoria Post Office This azalea bush at the bottom of the wheelchair ramp at the Post Office is one of my favorites - maybe because of the wonderful purple color, and because I pass it nearly every day. Soon the rhododendron behind it will also be in bloom. Azaleas and rhodies turn Astoria into a flowery paradise every spring. I've wanted to take a photo for the past few days, but each time I've been there, the rain has been coming down.

Azaleas with Rain Drops Here you can see the evidence of recent rain. I had the lighting set wrong on the second photo, then tried to correct the color, but the photo doesn't do justice to the image. I'll try again when I have more patience :)

Great photo! The white building is a wonderful contrast to the purple, and you got the raindrops perfectly! So... patience is the key? I'll never make it!

I'm ready to catch some sign of spring, but not so lucky as you. The weather has been mild but so an so, with clouds and rain.

Very pretty. Some of our azaleas are coming out, but it's been too darn cold!
