hard work pays off

I had to share this picture of one of my azalea bushes. It has absolutely exploded with blossoms. She didn't look so hot last year, but many of you may recall my post about the back-breaking work of putting composted manure into my all gardens last spring. Yes, I moaned and groaned about the labor at the time, but look at the results. Very satisfying.

LOVELY!!! My azalea is pretty skimpy and bare. Had lots of blooms on the branches that actually were there, but it isn't very full. guess I need to put some fertilizer on it!!!
