The weather forecast was for a sunny afternoon today but it didn't appear until almost 5 o'clock, very disappointing. I did some weeding wearing my old ski jacket, that's how cold it was! Anyway, the sun did appear at last. David is in the summerhouse reading, while I take some photos!
This rhododendron was in our garden when we moved here 19 years ago. It is much bigger now. I like it best at the bud stage as the flowers fade to such a pale lilac they look almost white and are quite insipid.
