A late-flowering native azalea

I was surprised to see that the Rhododendron prunifolium next to the garage was still in flower a month ago.

Curious, I thought.

And, I was even more surprised to see flowers when we came back "down the hill" a couple of weeks ago, and they're continuing to open.

And sure enough, this photo was posted in 2010 in June! Hmm, definitely a difference there. 

It's still covered with flowers today, after a cool, wet summer.

    I'm back in the blogosphere. Hurrah!
    Interested to note your late flowering over there. Odd seasons here but a generally good growing year.
    Best wishes

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
