Rhododendron Furnival's Daughter

Pin It

I only know this Rhodie's name because way back here the tag was still attached to it. Tags seem to get lost around here with great regularity. See more Rhododendrons here and here.

Spring Garden Series #8 - Peach and Gold Exbury Azalea

Pin It
Yet another Exbury (deciduous) azalea showing off full trusses. Though it's not labeled (none of my Rhodies or Azaleas are - a great oversight on my part), this may be named 'Cecile'.

Spring Garden Series #5 - Iris

Pin It

Every year about this time you'll find me hovering around the just-bloomed lavender-blue iris trying for shots like this one. What can I say? I'm fascinated by all the folds, ruffles, mystery, nuances of color - the whole shebang.

Came back from a weekend visiting with my sisters and nieces to this beauty, waiting for me to take a photo.

Spring Garden Series #4 - Azalea With Viburnum

Pin It
This apricot-yellow Exbury Azalea was planted about 4 years ago but it hasn't put out such a show of blooms until this spring.
And although it may soon get swallowed up by the viburnum, the two of them surely do look good together.

Purple Striped Pansies

Pin It

You may have to put up with me posting photos of pansies (Violas) for a while. I can't resist their little faces, not one of which is like another.
