I went to Keukenhof in Holland which is the most magical flower garden in the world. They have Azaleas, which are amazing. We do have them here in England of course, but I cannot grow them as my soil is too alkaline.
A fantastic Article.
Regards from England,

Beautiful! I do love red and chartreuse/bright green. It would be very nice to meet you. Who knows? I've been to England twice and if I get there again, I'll keep it in mind. I tip my hat to you.
