The story you are about to read is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.
It was a spring morning several years ago just like this morning when I received the call. I thought it was going to be like many others I receive. I was wrong.
The person on the other end of the phone had a neighbor’s cousin to visit the coast some years ago but wasn’t sure about the season. While at a local golf course, they had spotted a blue azalea, and now the caller wanted one.
