Day 830

We have tried growing rhododendrons more than once. They love that moist, cool, acidic soil. Unfortunately we live in a dry, hot, alkali area so despite how hard we work at trying to make them grow, they always die on us. Thank goodness we take vacations and stop at Oregon rest areas that have such pretty foliage.

Can you spot the bumblebees and caterpillar?

  1. I loved these flowers. Lots better than the bats. The biggest garden of them I saw was in Norfolk, Va in a beautiful botanical garden. It is not so cool there, but must get lots of humidity.
