Bronze All Over

Just so you don't think I was seeing things with the arborvitae the other day, I thought I'd share this photo of our lavender azalea.  It's bronze.

It's actually more of a coppery bronze then the brassy arborvitae bronze.  But - it's bronze.

But see how the edges of the leaves look all full and shiny?  That is a sign that the bush is getting enough water and not wind burnt.  As long as there isn't any dull tannish dry brown, it's all good.

There were also a lot of buds on the azalea, so depending on how much wind we get, it should put on a nice show in a few weeks.

Azalea - turns bronze in the winter.  Who knew!?
