As mentioned last week, the first five of these pictures are now two weeks old. They are too pretty to discard for lack of punctuality. However, it was necessary to delete one so that the most important, although less horticultural, sixth picture could be included. Not much of the bloom remains now.

1. Color seems odd for this one. It did not seem so greenish to me when I got the picture. In fact, it seemed more pale, and almost white. I know the camera sees it more accurately than I do.P00523-1

2. #1 from last week, which may have been ‘Mrs. G. W. Leak’, looks like this. I did not notice earlier. I would have otherwise deleted this instead of what I deleted to leave room for #6 below.P00523-2

3. If #4 from last week did not look like ‘Anah Kruschke’, it is because this one is. I knew I got a picture of it, but somehow switched the two. This is the only one that I can identify this week.P00523-3

4. Color is something that I am not proficient with. I do happen to prefer this color to other purple rhododendrons. I do not know if it is purple or lavender, or if lavender is just pastel purple.P00523-4

5. Of all the rhododendrons here, only a few are as richly red as this one. Of those few, this one is the second largest specimen, and most prolific in bloom. It is usually one of the last to bloom.P00523-5

6. Rhody! It is not much, but it proves that I at least tried to get a picture of what we all came here for. I deleted a good picture of another rhododendron to do it! Rhody would not cooperate.P00523-6

    1. Yes, the last Rhody is everyone’s favorite!
      The stickiness of the other rhododendrons is especially nasty for those of us who must pinch their buds! YUCK! I never found a common solvent to remove it. We must pinch acres of them on the farm!

  1. All of them are beautiful! I hope I have a green thumb too so I can grow a wonderful garden filled with magnificent flowers like that. ❤

    1. Well, these are not for every garden. I do enjoy working with them, and for many years, I enjoyed growing them on the farm. However, there are none in my own home garden. Some get quite large and would occupy space that I use for fruits or vegetables. Of course, #6 follows me about, and does not occupy much space at all.
