Tyler's Tree: April
And, oh yeah, my azaleas were beautiful this year. My husband keeps asking me "is that all they are going to do, flower one time?" and I keep telling him "yes, once a year they go all out and then they rest!"
We had a family reunion at our place this past weekend and there was a whole herd of smallish children. I kept nervously watching all the things we had planted, hoping none of them would come to any harm. Everything went very well until we were walking with the last family group out to their car when suddenly, their four year old reached out and snapped off the top of one of our newly planted trees! Nobody knew what to say! We were all shocked. It turns out the poor kid thought it was a weed and we "didn't want it to get any bigger"! Hopefully the tree will recover but if not, my mother has plenty more "babies" where that one came from.
