|Maddie loves to pose in the garden!!!|
Rhododendrons do best in zones 4-6 and 15-17. Here in Oregon you will see Rhododendrons growing on the sides of roads in the mountains. Most of the ones at that higher elevation are a light pink in bloom. They are amazing and beautiful to see!!
They need good drainage, acid soil, filtered light, although I have seem some growing in full sun and they do well.
I have 6 Rhodies now, and they are all gorgeous. Yesterday, on my way to work, I saw an orange one!! Now I need to make a trip to the nursery to see if I can find one in orange, it was an amazing sight!!!
|Notice the little stone path? Well, that was just a dirt trail made by Maddie. I decided to make it a permanent path for her and our little grandson. It takes them behind the flower bed next to the fence near our neighbors.|
|Just had to share this with you. The view out the grandchildren's bedroom window. One bedroom in our house is for our grandchildren. This is a great view. Once it is done blooming, I will be trimming it back as I have not done so in a few years!!!|
Well, that's it for today. Must get ready for work, time to quit playing!!!
Have a lovely day, take care, and enjoy the earth!!! Martha
