No Flowers

We will be driving back to Florida today after a hot, but exciting day in Augusta, Georgia.  If any of you are following the Masters Tournament, you've probably already heard about the lack of azaleas on the course.

I think these flowers are one of the most famous in the world, especially during this week. However, with the unusually warm winter this year, the azaleas bloomed early and there are very few left on the course, especially after a heavy rain storm with hail the night before. 

I was disappointed, but the course itself is so well maintained that it was only a little sad.  As we were leaving, I did spy this little patch back in the woods.  These two photos pretty much sum up all the azaleas this year.

Time to hit the road!  I'll be sharing more of the course - and players - when we get back to Florida.
