When we lived in California, two of our favorite bushes were Azaleas and Rhododendrons, we had them in our yards all of our married lives. You can imagine how disappointed we were when we moved to Colorado, only to find out that they didn't do well here. I'm sure there might be areas of Colorado where they grow, just not in our area. Bummer! We'll we had previously seen photos of Wild Rhododendrons growing on the walls or side of the road in Ireland. It took us days of driving, going on adventures before we finally spotted some. OH, they were glorious. Many were the shade of purple that we had in Sonoma County and we also saw Azaleas. Be still my heart.
It's like the Oregano that was growing in my flower bed-a good thing if you use it for cooking, but it totally took over the bed. Then this weekend when we were gardening, I sat pulling it up from the area between each piece of flagstone-it was a pain.
Well, I'm off to walk Hunter and then to join my girls at the pool for swim lessons, lunch and more swimming. I hope you have a fantastic Tuesday.
Joy to you.
