The Rhododendrons Are In Bloom!


I just had to share a few of the photos I snapped the other day when I noticed that our Rhododendrons were starting to bloom…








I planted this Rhododendron for my Mom on the corner of the house 15 -20 years ago, and it has grown to a massive size, it’s absolutely glorious while in full bloom!  I love the delicateness of the flowers and their lavender-pink color, I wish they lasted longer.

The Bumblebees are enjoying them too ~  I happened to catch this fuzzy little fellow buzzing around gathering nectar while I was out there…




It’s so wonderful to see the lovely, blooming things again, and I’m really looking forward to getting out there and planting my veggies.  I went to the garden center on Mother’s Day and came home afterward and planted a few herbs, it felt so great to be planting again!  It may be another week or so before I’m able to plant my vegetables though, because we’re still having some pretty cool temps here with the threat of frost at night, but soon…  🙂
