sumter real estate: The Flowers of Spring - The Azalea - 03/22/13 01:54 AM
 
Spring in South Carolina is blooming all around us.  I love this time of year.  Probably a lot of this love comes from being raised in Michigan and waiting impatiently for the messy nasty snow of late winter to melt bringing us the summer.  I remember one trip to Georgia at Easter when I was young.  The thing that struck me about the trip was the beautiful flowers that were in bloom in everyone’s yards.  Gorgeous waves of flowers covering bushes and in every direction.  My mom said they were azaleas and even she talked about them for years.
