Scented Azalea blooms


Scented Azalea blooms

I love this Azalaea. It's one of the large deciduous scented type and this year is the first year that it has really been covered with buds. I think it is because I removed a tree last year which it was having to compete with for water. Sorry, i don't know the name.
