April is my favorite month in NC. Here is why. I see this every day for a brief period around the end of March until mid April. The north side of our street blooms first with the dogwoods. My side of the street blooms almost two weeks later each year, with the pink dogwoods coming later than the white ones. My azaleas are just starting to bloom. I took these photos just this morning. Notice that I actually caught a bee pollenating one of the white azaleas in one picture. You may need to click on the picture to see it, though.
