The feature image shows concrete steps built into the Azalea Gardens at Ravines Garden State Park in Palatka, Florida. A spring-fed creek is one of the beautiful attractions. March and April are the best times to visit the park when the Azaleas reach their peak bloom (most years). There have been late freezes some years and torrential thunderstorms other years that have frozen or damaged the buds. The website keeps everyone up-to-date on the progress of the blooms. As of this blog, they are at 20-25% bloomed.
