The few deciduous azaleas that escaped the double freezes have produced some bloom.
There is a near daily inspection to see what will be happening next while the rhododendron bloom. Only wet weather will stop a walk through the garden.
The kitties often follow along or leap ahead.
All that may be left of the rhododendron by next weekend is photographic evidence and memories of an ornery spring.
Even in bad year there is much to see.
