  1. That's beautiful Sue, such lovely colour - very uplifting. I thought about doing a similar thing on my blog but just couldn't get a decent enough image.
    Thank you for sharing

    1. They're rhododendrons Snowbird, The purple is a miniature and the larger one is also a small variety (if that makes sense).

  7. It's a shame we can't grow rhodies and azalea here our soil just isn't acid enough - but they do look glorious when they are in full swing.

    1. Apparantly Elaine there is now a Rhodi available that doesn't need acid soil. I think I saw it on one of the shopping channels :)
      Failing that I have a couple of Rhodis on neutral soil and I just scatter ammonium sulphate round the area once a year - they seem to be thriving!

    2. I also like that they are evergreen and so are 'there' all year round.

  9. Gorgeous colours, they just zing. It reminds me that I should take a trip to Temple Newsam to see the rhododendrons there, they have a wonderful display.

    1. It's ages since I went to Temple Newsam, Jo. I miss the grounds where I used to work as we had lots of azaleas and rhododendrons.
