Sugar White Azalea

Every once in awhile you come across something that stuns. Going to the white azalea was a second choice. The last remaining gardenia was too brown and dry to give. For myself, it would’ve sufficed, but when you present a flower, you require that it be fairly unblemished or the receiver may think you didn’t care enough to choose well.

So, among the singles were a few full doubles– I picked a double. Each center: a fresh zingy chartreuse. Parked in the shade, you don’t notice their crystaline surface– brought into the sun they glisten as if dusted with sugar. And, they have the slightest hint of fragrance, slightly spicy, musky. This is my new obsession… the white azalea.
