The day before Easter, Sudoku brought in a couple of azalea blossoms from the yard. I floated them in a small bowl of water and put them on the table with some dyed eggs as our Easter centerpiece. I was surprised that 1 week later, they still looked great.
I dumped them out and brought in some more. These looked lovely for 10 or 11 days! Azalea blossoms will become a spring favorite centerpiece around here.
You might not be able to tell in the photo, but the peach colored blossoms are double blossomed blossoms. They look like a blossom within a blossom. (There's probably a technical name for that, but I don't know what it is.)
