Azalea Bushes in Bloom

I love gardening and was pleasantly surprised to see that all of my Azalea bushes are in full bloom or almost full bloom, 2 1/2 weeks ahead of their normal schedule! Yeah! We had a really mild winter this past year, so I think that having an early mild spring has really helped all of my trees, bushes and flowers come into bloom much earlier than what they usually do.

One of the things I like about Azaleas is that they grow extremely well here in Pennsylvania and they are very low maintaince. In addition, they don't set off my allergies like my apple trees do, so I like having several of them planted all around our property.

I think come fall, I will have hubby plant a few more since the 6 that I have are doing fabulous this year! Enjoy our photo of the week!
