Spring is in the air, and it’s azalea time in the San Mateo and Palatka areas. The azaleas are particularly beautiful this year and we had a mild winter, and the warm weather came early. As you know, we have been re-landscaping the church gardens. Here is a look at the gardens in their current state. We have a collection of mature azaleas that have been here for many years, and we boast 7 different colors. I would have to say, they are more beautiful than Ravine Gardens, which is a State Park here in Palatka that hosts an Azalea Festival the 1st weekend of March each year, but I might be a bit biased. Here’s a stroll around the grounds and see the beauty here!
