I planted this azalea hybrid a number of years ago. Since then, it’s been a favorite. The shrub blooms later than other azaleas, but it produces both white and pink blossoms, and even individual blossoms with both white and pink areas on the same flower.

Enjoy your weekend!

Like all the others who enjoy gardening, I find the extra tasks we have this time of year both rewarding and encouraging. Most of my plants are in the ground now and I have just a few more items to purchase and plant. This gaillardia is not from my garden, but those sunny colors seemed like a good choice for the beginning of June.
Have a good weekend.

Another week and yet another incident of senseless killings and incomprehensible sadness. You can’t help but feel, surely, lawmakers will see the urgency of changing our gun laws, and still, it’s difficult to think that will occur anytime soon. I hope I’m wrong. It’s not a very encouraging message on the Thursday before Memorial Day.
Take care, all.
