Rhododendron update …

OOperation rhododendron relocation was a success. Here’s a little update for you. The 15′ rhododendron is doing well and adjusting to it’s new location. All of the transplants have been staked, wrapped, composted and mulched to perfection. We needed serious stone work to hold the steep slope in place in front of these beautiful green gems. We used the stones from the old fireplaces that we removed during the renovation. I guess that ‘green’ and thrifty can be the same thing. Right? I’m married to a super accountant after all. I have no idea what colors these beauties will bloom, but I’ll be thrilled to see them in the early Summer.

      Jennifer, I have no idea what color they are! That is the exciting part. I hope they are white or pink, but I will adjust to whatever color they are.
