It's definitely not blue.....!!

A red hot pink image to go with the red hot weather here in Perth, with the over 35C forecast for the next ten days, possibly more, it's getting harder to keep lawns green and plants alive with water rationed to sprinkler use only two days a week! Pots and baskets can be hand watered and believe me they need it every couple of days. I've had this pink Azalea in a shallow pot for the last eight years, it sits in the full blisteringly hot sun in summer and whatever mother nature throws it's way for the rest of the year, amazingly it flowers at least three times a year, that's what I call good value oui! Happy Wednesday.....

  1. Red hot and pink. Lovely. I love azaleas. They don't get the same heat in Hartford, although July and August can be pretty hot.

    I am not one to evaluate whether a man's lips are sensual. I specialize in women's lips. Red hot and pink.

  3. Beautiful azalea! Our area is famous for its azaleas - used to have an annual Azalea Festival with the queen being chosen from one of the NATO countries. Now it is called the Norfolk NATO Festival...but it still coincides with the blooming of the azaleas in the Botanical Gardens...April. Very lovely photo!

  4. Azaleas are amazing...love the saturation here. I think a lot of people would probably exchange their cold for your heat! :-)

  8. These are GORGEOUS, Grace! Such gorgeous colors! I wish I could send you some of our weather -- it was beautiful today, cool, blue skies and lots of sun, for a change!! Of course, it won't hang around for long, but I'll enjoy it while it's here! Stay cool!!

  11. Those must be very unique azaleas that it flowers three times a year. Here, in this part of the state, they only flower once a year. The picture is really bright; it can make any room very if you can make it big, print it out and hang in the room.

  20. Here our azaleas bloom for a few weeks in the spring and that's it. We do have a variety called Encore that blooms more often. I can't imagine keeping a potted one going year round.
