I owe the Pinecrest Azalea Gardens an apology. When Mother and I went searching for them in 2011, we arrived late in the day and late in the season. The light didn’t do the plants justice, and we were a little past the peak of the blooms. I happened upon the pix tonight and turned to the Gardens’ website to see the 2014 schedule.
Drat! The site said the gardens would be closing May 20. “See you next spring.”
It’s in the vicinity of Oak Ridge, but isn’t the easiest place to find. Check out the website for directions.
