Rhododendron

Rhododendron

It sure has been a good year for rhododendrons up here in the north. Every plant is blooming. Have seen many wonderful pictures taken by many of my friends.

My father’s apple of his eye – a violet rhododendron which he cares with devotion is also does its best. Last year went without any blooms but this year is totally different.

It has been the only one he has had but in the spring I bought him a pink one. Now we just wait and see if that one makes it through the winter.

Snowball

Snowball1

Snowballs are here again! The bush seems to be full of white flowers.

Hope that the branches are able to take the extra weight brought in by the racemes. They have promised heavy summer rains and it might be too much to bear.

I have been so happy this one bush that I decided to try to have few more. Trying to have new saplings by bending the branches to the soil and waiting them to grow roots.
