Shocked again

I'm no lover of azaleas or rhododendrons but this azalea is surprising me all over again.



Photo taken from indoors; the colour is rather lurid and shows better in last year's pic. Pity it has no scent but the honeysuckle makes up for it, wafting in through the upstairs windows. Now I'm off to watch another episode of The Chelsea Flower Show.

BTW, what was all that rubbish on the Southern News this morning about the weather being ten degrees cooler today? Forecasters, huh.
