"In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful." ~Abram L. Urban
How nature works is clearly visible in this Azalea flower. The original color is pink as can be seen below the white with pinkish taint.
This is part of the garden landscape grown along the pathway outside my unit.
This is the original Pink Azalea of the same shrub as above and from below.
And this is the main plant of the pink-white Azalea. Like the lilac colour, this was also trimmed or pruned.
There is no other way I can describe this pretty Azalea in lilac hue. In just one shrub, how this sturdy plant gives off copious blooms.
Their buds spurt from this shrub generously.
When they finished blooming last year, I pruned them to discourage growth as they have the tendency to grow very high. I wanted them to look dwarfy but bushy. But nature cannot suppress their growth anyway. So I thought, I will try to eliminate overcrowding of branches to give more room for the flowers to spread out. And it looks like my idea works.
This is how this Azalea looked last year. My space is small with enough room to fill with garden delights*.
"Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity." ~Lindley Karstens, noproblemgarden.com
