This is my best view of my Rhododendron from my front door. While it is beginning to fade, it still sets off a great view of color. I used this picture as my screen save and had many compliments on last years version of this age old plant. Hurry up spring, I want to enjoy it again……soon.
It amazes me each year that this majestic flower comes back to life and fills my window with majestic blooms. They begin as a deep purple bud that opens into the best shade of lavender that makes my grey siding just come to life. I really can’t take credit for this old bush as it was here when we bought the house in 1991. The owners before me must have enjoyed it as much as I do. I have taken pictures of it from my front door, from my office window and up close as you see in my picture. My favorite color of the Rhododendron is the lavender. One can not help but notice as they see my pictures of flowers.
I am so ready to see some life back in this great give God gave us. I am sure it is also wishing the cold and snow would leave so that it could once again shine in all it’s glory. Thanks Cee for suggesting this great picture of spring that I so look forward to sharing with all my neighbors as they pass by.
