Lambert’s + Azaleas = Turtle Creek

It’s kind of hard to see it on this cold and dismal day, but spring is here.  And what is the most ubiquitous sign of spring in Dallas?  Azaleas.  Lots of them in lots of colors – hard to believe they were not  thought to be able to grow in Dallas until Lambert’s brought them here in 1935.  Lambert’s is celebrating 90 years of making Dallas beautiful – from time to time I’ll show old photos of how their landscaping shaped Highland Park.  PS – if your daughter is going through sorority rush – DO NOT photograph her at Turtle Creek with the azaleas.  From what I’m told, her picture will be ditched immediately.
