Tiny Azalea Bud


They usually bloom big in the middle of February. It's almost the middle of March, but I was filled with happiness when I saw this little azalea bud today. Finally!

Update: three days later.

  3. Nice! I guess the colder than usual February kept your azaleas from blooming. I normally see signs of spring about mid-February and just the other day I noticed some tiny green shoots forming on some of the bushes in our yard. Although, it's warmer these past few days, we are now dealing with a ton of rain. I want to get outdoors to soak up the sun and fun!

    1. I'll take lots of rain this week, if only we can have some bike-riding, park-walking days next week for spring break.

  4. The sun, the sun. They keep promising it. Anyway, the wildflowers should have enough moisture this year to be beautiful. Love your little azalea blossom. The trees are beginning to bloom. Seems very late to me, but maybe it's just because our winter didn't really come until Jan/Feb. Spring - I need it!

  9. Lovely little bud.

    Some of ours have bloomed, but not all of them, and not as many as usual.

  11. It's been SO long since I've seen azalea buds! I used to live in MS but I've been in MA for almost 15 years now. I love spring in Mississippi.

  13. We have on little azela "tree" which becomes a single giant flower each year. It has so many flowers on it that flowers are all you can see when it's in bloom. It looks like a single giant flower right now.

  16. The azaleas in my yard are just beginning to show a hint of color, so it shouldn't be long now. Yours is a beautiful shade of pink. I hope you'll take a photo of the bush in full bloom and post it for us to enjoy.

  17. Our early rhododendrons are just starting to bloom and it has been warm here this winter. Things are weird. No predictions on blooming times this year. My Snapshots

  18. I love the first blooms! We have an azalea in our backyard, but I rarely see it in bloom--my kids pick all the flowers off it before I can get out there!

  19. How pretty! Unfortunately for me that means winter is on the way down under.
