As you may be well aware, we love to garden around here. Surprise!
About 15 years ago we were very fortunate to find and purchase four Rhododendron shrubs that are very difficult to find.
They are of the 'Hong Kong' variety which is a very pale yellow.
We waited patiently, well sort of, for about four years for them to really start to blossom out.
And every year since we can hardly wait for them to appear again. They started yesterday.
This is the first blossom of what appears to be many more.
We gardeners get excited about things like this!
