I can't get enough of flowers these days. I never cared much about them before, but gardening is in my blood and I think it's starting to creep into my consciousness.  Azaleas, camellias, quince, red-bud, dogwood -- there's such a familiarity to these names despite the fact that I just recently learned to decipher which is which. Jasmine has also started making its debut this year and the fragrance, just in passing, is so breathtaking it will stop you dead in your tracks.
