Azalea, First bloom in six years

Azalea, First bloom in six years (Rhododendron canadense)

This pink flowered one has never bloomed for me all the years I've had it. The new position and my addition of acids to the soil must have been just the thing. It is very happy now, and gave me few sparse pink blooms. I'm excited to watch it develop in this new place.

Moved my rhodo this spring, Gt. It rewarded me with nice green leaves and blossom! They are wonderful things, aren't they? This new garden is really starting to cook!

This move did it well. I'm expecting great things from it next year. I'm glad to have anything like this surviving. Still putting on a pic of the white lights melting, really something. All the wild flowers are melting, I've noticed the arnica is all dried in place, limp.

I'm glad to hear your new garden is doing so well too.
