After getting our plant fix at the Holden plant sale, we headed out for a walk. We wanted to see the rhododendron garden. When asking directions, the docent told us it was a 20 min. walk, so off we went. The 20 min. didn’t take into account all the “hey hon, look at this” that kept taking us off the path. We weren’t in any hurry, but we did want to see the rhodies and azaleas. There is so much to see at the Holden that you really have to take it in small chunks. The rhodie garden is surrounded by a 10 foot high deer fence. Nothing was getting over the fence that didn’t fly.
Pat and I have not had much luck with either rhodies or azaleas. Love the flowers, just can’t seem to figure out how to grow robust bushes. I have been accused of being prone to hyperbole. I prefer to think of it as being enthusiastic. Not this time. The rhodies and azaleas are magnificent. Here are some of the pics.
