Day 22 - Honeysuckle Azalea

These are some of the earliest spring flowers in Lower Alabama, blooming in February before the big showy imported azaleas.  These are native to North America, and occur in colors from white to pink to orange.  The flowers appear before the foliage.  This one grows in our back yard and I am grateful to the former owner that planted it there!
