Memories of a Summer – Azalea

With winter refusing to go away (and threat of more snow in March!!), I thought I’d share some pictures of a warming Azalea from last summer.

Azaleas belong to the Rhododendron family of plants that thrive in soils that are non-alkaline, which in the UK means special compost etc. The plants flower from late spring to early summer and lend a splash of much-needed colour in gardens.
