Starting early this year. We have not had any cold weather this winter, have yet to see temps even close to freezing. Just a days in the upper 30's lower 40's, enough to make the trees lose their leaves. The only thing is that the azaleas think it is spring and are now throwing out some flowers. Not really happy about it as I would rather they wait until spring, if we get a cold snap, I will now have to shelter them all, well the ones in pots anyway. First up is an unknown azalea, I think it is a kurume. It has multicolored flowers and it very pretty when in full bloom. I don't think that I will see it this year as it is slowly opening the buds a few at a time.
