              This is the size of a dinner plate! Completely over the top but fun while it lasts which is not long if it is windy or pours.89F11955-B3CD-4986-BAD4-36B3F0190BE4.jpeg

                    A few of the many Rhododendrons and Azaleas I have. The first 1 has a glorious scent as well, a real star.

                        Thanks Pete but I take no credit whatsoever as apart from giving them a really good growing medium when planted, that is it. Never pruned, fed or attended to except I do dead head when the plants are young, after that they thrive on neglect! I wish all plants were so undemanding.
