    Your garden inspires me to make mine look nice. I enjoy searching for unusual, beautiful plants.

    Your garden shows many years of dedicated care and
    that care has been tremendously rewarded. Everything
    looks beautiful!

    Well, actually I think it could be a pretty good year in 2016... But there are always damage in many Rhodies in our very cold climate. I must accept the brown foliage of many... The buds are often frustrating ... But not that much this year.. About deciduous ones (Azaleas), many could be very nice because the buds have not been eaten by deers, ruffed grouses or wild turkeys last Winter. I tried a new repellent called bobbex and put many metalllic flag repellent for birds... If there is no longer late frosts, many shrubs could be beautiful. The blooming season is only beginning here!!! Early lilacs just opened a few days ago!

    I am surprised you wrote Azaleas and Rhodies are not doing well under your climate. Was the last winter very cold in your country?

    My azaleas haven't done well this year because of all the rain. Rhodies
    in particular hate wet feet. Aza. Coral Bells did well because they are
    slightly covered. Delaware and the Rhodies did jack squat. Well,
    maybe floated a bit.

    All these last years my azaleas did pretty well, my Rhodos did well !!!! But this year's flowering is very low down to zero :( !! We had almost no winter here, few rain these last months, with a rather cold period beginning of April.
    Imo the plants had not enough rain!!

    Something happened to the second photo?

    Otherwise, gorgeous flowers. I can almost smell the lilacs.
