Rhododendron


Rhododendron

This one was roughed up during my house reconstruction but seemed to pull through OK. I'm a reconstructionist!

What a beauty! Love the shape, the colour...and the backdrop of the light grey - really highlights it well!
You could use several definitions, Paul..revitalist, regenerator, rescuer..😊

Klahanie, I was thinking the same thought! My perfect idea...my preppy head would love a home in Nantucket..
Ok, Paul..I know it’s not Nantucket, but, you’ve a lovely home!

That's OK Kate - I love Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. They feel like home to me. They are a 'hot' summer destination but my favorite time to be there is Autumn. You just want to get on your bike and ride. I love the classic New England charm.

Thanks Klahanie. The picket fence replaces the box wood hedges that I couldn't stand anymore (high maintenance) My garden expanded by 3 feet. I have a space earmarked for an Ansomia Storm cloud plant as soon as I can find one.

Blooms in spring of Ansomia "Storm cloud" would compliment your white picket fence
