Many years ago I saw a film called Rumble Fish. From memory, bearing in mind this was in the mid 1980’s and things are a little hazy, I can tell you the following. It starred Mickey Rourke and Matt Dillon. There were motorbikes and much angst. It was very cool but a little too violent for my Disney tendencies. Synonyms, allegories and general smartypants stuff abounded. It was filmed in black and white except for the eponymous Rumble Fish who appeared in vivid, retina burning colour.
This diminutive, rose-flowered azalea flower was a beacon in the dull light of the mid winters day. It reminded me of that film. Without the fighting. Well not much anyway.
