My Neighbor’s Azalea

Detailed vibrant blooms in late afternoon sun. And a tiny, delicate spiderweb.

At least I think it’s my neighbor’s azalea. It’s right on the dividing line at the top of the little slope between our yards but never did well under trees, then the pestilent ivy grew on it from my yard, then honeysuckle vine pretty much choked it off so that it barely bloomed and was just a small and twisted cluster of half-dead branches. A few years ago I unwound all the vines from it and encouraged it to grow with an overlay of nutritious soil and mulch, extra water in dry weather, trimming off dead branches and helping it regain a nice shape, gently leaning over into my yard, I’ll admit. It still doesn’t have too many branches but it does bloom pretty fervently.
