It's Rhododendron Time Again

My wife took our kids to see "Horton Hears a Who." Her review, "It was funny when I was awake."

High praise.

I know you've all been eagerly awaiting my rhododendron photos. Here's the first of an ongoing series of the rhododendrons that live in my front yard.

The leaves stay somewhat green throughout the winter, for those who don't know.

I like 'em.

How can you post this when you haven't gotten the goose video up yet??

Ha. I fell asleep at Horton hears a who as well. I liked the review that said, " it distinguishes itself from other recent Dr. Seuss adaptations by not being the worst movie ever made"

the kids liked it though

Here is a pictorial tour where you can combine bikes, hikes, and rhododendrons.

There is nothing better when camping up north than fixing a pot of Labrador Tea, see pics at:

It is a relative of your rhododendrons. Can't wait to see them bloom. Did you give your bushes a few handfuls of peat?

That link won't work unless you add the the final 'tml'.

I'll ask the gardener if she's used any peat on the rhodies (that's my nickname for them).

I'll have to be careful though, she's kinda testy about her garden stuff.
