A lasting gift by cjwhite

A lasting gift

My oldest daughter gave me a rhododendron bush for Mother's Day years ago. It has survived, despite my lack of gardening skills. It is full of blooms at the moment. I wanted get a pic, before the rain and cold ruin the blossoms.

Thank you so much for hanging in there with me the past few days. Hopefully, I'll be able to catch up with all your pics tomorrow night. :0)
Lovely photo, Carolyn. So wonderful that it has survived. Enjoy your time with family.
