    Out of all my plants, the Rhododendron Firelight is my clear favourite and is in flower at the moment, so please forgive my indulgence.

          Absolutely stunning and no sign of frost damage, lucky you. It will certainly have enjoyed the constant rain most of us have been having. Quite right to have a little boast! and let us enjoy what to my mind anyway are the most beautiful of all shrubs.

                      Marcel Menard has opened his first flower - such a stunning shade of purple. Will post pics when a few more are open.
