Editor's note:  Above is a copy of an article that I wrote for the Person County Heritage Book, vol. II in 1983.  Mother died here in Wilmington on May 1, 1997.


Recently, everyone seems to be posting pictures of flowers in their gardens or a pic-a-day in May.  Now I know I will never be posting every day, but I thought perhaps I should post a picture of my home in Wilmington surrounded by azaleas.  

Our Wilmington azalea festival was already about 3 weeks ago, and my azaleas this year have all but faded, so this picture was taken several years ago, but it does repeat itself every spring.  You can see why we have an azalea festival!
