First Post of the Year: A Winter-Flowering Rhododendron

Pin It

Celebrating mid-winter with the first Rhodie blooms of the year.

On February 3rd, a rather ragged-looking swallow buzzed the eaves of our house where they come, usually later, to build their nests.
This is terribly early for the swallows to arrive and I worry how they will do when winter settles in again.
Right now we're having very un-February like weather:  Sun, heat, dry.

Hello Christine girl ! ... I have been away from blogging for a while .. trying to get back into it ... especially in the dead of our winter.
I'm sorry your weather is so unnatural and dry .. makes life difficult for everything living thing.
Gorgeous picture of the rhodo .. color so pretty and the degrees of light on different levels of the plant is eye catching .. very nice indeed !
Thanks for stopping by : )
