It's great, the wood painting/lime work looks seamless! Beautiful.

Dale,

Beautiful azalea. Are you doing anything else to prevent the deterioration of the deadwood? I have a few recently collected azaleas that have deadwood which will have to be addressed in the future.

Thank you and best regards,

I'm not doing anything extra from what I've mentioned. I'm not noticing any deterioration and it's been several years.
I've used wood hardener over the years on things but I'd have to say that once rot sets in, it's going to keep rotting no matter what you do. But, others may disagree of course.
