|Glory, Alexis and Justin|
We--meaning Tommy and I--were first introduced to the pretty and rather fragrant Neon Lights Azaleas one lovely spring when we managed to visit Highland Park, the Botanical garden in Rochester, NY.

We were on the way back home from a trip to Niagara Falls and I have to say I liked this garden visit almost as much as seeing the falls for the second time. That's saying something! I love-love-love Niagara Falls!
We had the garden almost entirely to ourselves which was wonderful! We were told by a volunteer worker that we had just missed the annual Lilac Festival--a huge event with vendors, music, loads of frolicking people-- undoubtedly there for the fanfare and not the garden delight which delight me--and lots and lots of noise.
Oddly, I wasn't sad about that. I don't like crowds, especially at a garden, so I was quite glad to have missed all the festivities. I'm just funny that way.
We saw azaleas in neon yellows, oranges and pinks at the garden, but I only have this orange one, but it certainly is neon bright, don't you think?
