Texas' Largest Azalea Garden

This is our third year to camp near Nacogdoches, Texas with the music group. Jan and Wes are here with us and Jan did some investigating and discovered that Nacogdoches is home to the largest Azalea Garden in Texas. So, we spent a day visiting the gardens. The garden is located near the Stephen F. Austin State University. Since it was earth day, there were lots of young school students in various centers in the Mast Arboretum next the the Azalea Garden. Jan, Diana and I enjoyed walking the paths that weave their way through the azaleas. We also saw various Japanese Maples, camellias, hydrangeas, and lots of other ornamental trees. There was no charge to visit the gardens.

The bees really love the Azaleas.

The bush this azalea was from was both pink and white.
