@Sean Regan, This is the first time that I have seen tree azaleas.Reaching the end of the azalea and rhodo flowering season.
Our azaleas to one side of the patio.
We've let them "do their own thing," for the more than two decades they've been there.
There's no uniformity like in much of the rest of the garden, though I do prune off bits if they protrude too far over the patio. Some are now reaching the top of the fence. They give 'arry the hedgehog's house protection from the sun.

These are the sorry looking reduced to clear wilting rhodos, I bought in Aldi a couple of years ago. They don't water their plants due to "'elf n' safety." "They've rewarded my kindness."

Our two "tree azaleas," in ceramic pots. When they've finished flowering, I'll shape them up a bit.

This is our tortoiseshell rhodo. We bought this and the one to the right of it fifteen years or more ago, when they were reduced to half price, as any blooms they had, had frost burn. They started off both the same size, but this one "bolted."
Over the years I've pruned off the lower branches as they stuck out too far over the lawn. It has a wire around it to stop it spreading any more. It's always the last one to flower and there will be a lot of blooms.

The roses on the new patio are taking over "flowering duties."

Some of this year's bloomSo, we all like showing off our gardens. Sometimes, at least for me, I want to share a photo or two but I don't want to make an entirely new thread for it. That's why I created this. This can be a place where we all can share our gardens on any given day, or every day. Photos, videos, whatever you'd like to share. I created a similar thread over on the pond forum and it's gone well. I'll start it out.
My Blanket Flower is just about to bloom. I grow quite a few of these around my yard, and it should look great when they're all blooming!

I also have a short video of my mostly-native wildflower garden which is entering its first full year. Most plants are seedlings, so it'll take another season before many of the plants bloom.
