So, this azalea is almost dead. This is the only surviving branch, and it sports two blooms and a bud, and maybe there’ll be another, but this may be it it it. I was going to tear up the plant (it’s a miniature) over the winter, but got lazy I guess…anyway, it gets one more hurrah….
Meanwhile, the privet I don’t care about (borderline hate, but can you really hate a plant that doesn’t poison you?) is blooming!! and generally putting on a good show.
