U S National Arboretum Azalea Collection 22 April
The rain began to fall seriously during lunch and continued into the afternoon. It was too wet to do much in the collection and Tony had sprayed in the greenhouses so they were off limits. I decided to walk through the Azalea Collection. Well, my goodness who didn't I see out there in the pouring rain. My good friend Tom and his friend from Nova Scotia walked up as soon as I parked my Mitsubishi. Shortly thereafter I passed 4 visitors decked in serious raingear, and after quickly looping through the collection, I happened upon our Director, Dr. Hefferan and Tom Sherwood from NBC News. Those pesky azaleas can bring the visitors in come rain or come shine.
