What's wrong with this picture?
It's the end of October and the azaleas are blooming!
Actually, there's nothing wrong (well, almost nothing). They are Encore Azaleas and they are supposed to bloom twice. It's just that in previous years they re-bloomed in August. I'm figuring the recent rains brought them back after a very dry summer.
It makes me smile - like we've fooled Mother Nature. Or has she fooled me?
