Had to go looking for a suitable painting and found this watercolor from years ago. Azaleas were made for watercolor... any other medium just would be too much.
The best medicine for me was a day at the lake with dogwoods in full riot and azaleas coming on fast and strong. J tried driving the van down to the boathouse... which went without a hitch, but the return trip was a combo of too much hill and not enough traction. We got to know our neighbors better, however... the good, helpful kind that show up just when you need them!
