I thought it might rain tomorrow, so I got myself outside to see how the blooming goes. Our Rhododendron has gone into blossom overdrive. I have rarely seen a Rhododendron bloom this heavily. We nursed this bush for 20 years and this is the first year it seems happy to be here. Good thing we are patient!
I found we also managed to have three lilacs on our huge tree. Three! Last year we only had one, so I think we may be heading for a new record.
And the Solomon’s Seal is still in heavy bloom, but now the shade is taking over that side of the property, so they will pass away until next spring.
And finally, let us not forget the trees. The leaves aren’t full yet and it’s late. All the trees should be in full leaf by now.
