Is this in half-a-dustbin, Sid? LOL. The autumn colours are wonderful.

Barbara - YES! This one is in a half dustbin! You'd never know tho would you? You can see the rim at this time of year (no leaves), but it's invisible in the summer.

For anyone else reading this wondering what all this bustbin business is about - my garden soil is neutral, so all my Rhodos/Azaleas are planted into large containers (including sawn-in-half dustbins) filled with ericaceous compo and let into the ground.

I can see it now the leaves have gone, but it's not too intrusive. I love these plants :-)

They are a kinda yellowy-orange. I do have a really bad picture of the flowers just beginning to open last year on my page, but for some reason I didn't take a picture of the fully open flowers - will defo get one this year tho!
