My sweetheart calls Azaleas ‘party girls’, because they burst into flower, divert our attention from everything around them, drop their flowers and then leave things looking a bit boring. His words, not mine! But while they last…

      1. Maybe you can work on your dance moves and parody writing skills while locked down. I can see that coming up with wall of mirrors might be a challenge for you.

    1. The wild ones I’ve seen in the South are more spindly – graceful, but not as big as these ones. Either the ones we have here have been selected out or they love our climate.

    1. I never used to like them when I was younger. Their colours seemed a bit gaudy. As I’ve grown older, and fallen under my sweetheart’s influence, quite a few gardening things that seemed dodgy to me have become more like objects of desire. That either makes him a bad influence or a liberating one.
