Last summer I killed the grass, and mulched a large space above my roses.


Ground Hog Day was a warmer than usual February day and  rain was forecast.  I moved three of my Exbury Azaleas that were in a shaded area.  They rarely bloomed, and needed more sun.  They will get plenty of sun here.  My intentions were to plant five to see if they live, then add six more next winter.  First it started raining enough to drive me inside, then the rain turned into an unexpected snow and that was the end of digging.  The other two will have to wait until the snow melts and the soil warms again.


In these mountains it’s hard to put a shovel in the ground without hitting rocks.  You can see some of the rocks by the newly planted azaleas that had to be dug out.

I’m hoping for many more blossoms like the one below from the only Exbury I will leave in place.
