Zoom In Zoom Out #27

I'm glad I photographed my azalea for Helena's ZIZO meme because it has been so dry here that a week's neglect while we were away has seriously parched some of the blooms and they are no longer as vibrant or copious.


This trailing azalea always flowers later than others in my garden and each year I worry that it has failed ... and am then mightily relieved when it bursts into glorious technicolour.  I'm giving it plenty of TLC in the hope that I can get another week or two of pleasure from it.

I certainly don't have green fingers and can just about keep my growing collection of orchids alive and that's it. I've never had any joy with azaleas but yours here are truly glorious.

Oh my that is GORGEOUS. Yes it's been so dry here too, and I've been watering my tubs with cold tea out of the teapot lol.

Still I'm not complaining, I want more sun please :)

Such wonderful color!
It's been wet here but the flowers aren't really vivid. Just the grass.
