Bloom Tuesday

The prettiest plants in my garden today are the azaleas. These are ‘Pink Lights’ azaleas, part of the University of Minnesota’s Northern Lights series. The flower structure on these is so striking, like a series of horns playing off the center bud.

In the past, I’ve had trouble with the blooms blowing off the plant, just as they are blooming. Despite strong winds this weekend, the flowers hung on.

I have lots of things just about ready to burst, including (left) my Haralson apple tree and (right) lilacs.

I’ve also got flowers on some volunteer strawberries in my vegetable bed.
