The Azalea Festival wouldn't be complete without the street fair in downtown Wilmington. It started Friday night.
933 John Orchard Lane is home to a garden a decade in the making. It's decorated with dozens of tulips, nearly a hundred azaleas and garden art that all weave around a winding concrete path.
The yard at 313 Cavalier Drive may be common property, but garden owner Signa Stalvey found a way to make it her own.
Size does not matter when it comes to gardening, and the garden on 209 Cavalier Drive proves it.
It's a small garden that dreamed big and knock out roses were a good start. Garden owner Allan Donald's backyard haven on 201 Cavalier Drive is home to maple trees, soft-touch hollies, camellias and evergreens.
It started blooming in the 1940s, and now it's all grown up. Garden owner Bill Hobbs and his daughter Kinzy Tippett share the same blood and backyards at 2234 Metts Avenue.
The Camellia Cottage Bed and Breakfast on South 4th Street in Wilmington doubles as an eclectic garden escape and a hot wedding spot.
It's serene, calm and tranquil. It's everything you would want in a garden, especially as a patient.
Tucked in-between two two-story homes, you'll find a sweet one-story house on the Azalea Festival Historic Home Tour.
The Azalea Festival's website said around 1860, Captain Nathan Brickhouse built the cottage at 503 South Front Street with the full-width and inviting front porch.
There's another colorful house on the Azalea Festival Historic Home Tour that's very typical of Wilmington. The house is located at 326 S. 4th Street in downtown Wilmington.
