Only Needs Sun, Rain, and 36 Years

May 22

This was one of the very first plantings we did when we moved in 37 years ago. That fall my sister and I went to the nurseries (and there used to be many more than there are now) and we picked out 2 white azaleas, a rhododendron, and 2 Andromeda bushes. Only 1 of the white azaleas could hold its own against the rhododendron. There is an Andromeda bush (I think) still hanging on behind the white azalea. The other Andromeda bush thrives at the front corner, well away from the rhododendron. A friend has told me she wants a rhodo like mine. All she needs is another 36 years. šŸ™‚

    That really is spectacular! Mine, of course, is nowhere near as nice, despite being in for the same amount of time. But in fairness, it’s been beaten up a few times by roofers, replanters, etc. In any case, we sure did a good job with yours! All the rhodos all over town are blooming like crazy… must have been a good winter for them!
