Azaleas are a “garden” flower, or maybe a nice shrub to line the driveway – but occasionally, walking through the forest, you see these relics alongside daffodils, indicators of a more human-cultivated past. They bear testimony that a homesite used to stand here, and the plants, and the bees that love them, thrive long after the people have moved on.

  1. A beautiful flower, it’s easy to understand why people would plant them in their yards and future generations enjoy them. They are native out here, in California and Oregon, and I often come on them when wandering in the woods. –Curt
