Evening everyone. A nasty day here overall, so here are a few photos to compensate in case it was the same wherever you are

R. makinoi is an extremely attractive, narrow leaved species Rhododendron and my first photo today shows it opening some new foliage. Quite delightful. The only drawback is that it can break easily from its roots, but it is well worth taking a chance on it.

The second photo is of inside one of the front walls and the third photo is of a section of the North-Eest garden. There are a nice few gems to be seen in each.

Gosh that is very unusual rhodo foliage in the first photo, Sean.  The other photos are lovely too; your stone wall shows off the plants well.

Evening Joan and thanks. I have a penchant for narrow leaved Rhodos and that one is one a few different types I have in the garden. I find them very attractive.

It is hard to beat a lovely stone wall, all my Dads work, may he R.I.P.

Nice enough day here really but a bit windy.
