Ever since the time we lived in Ireland, I have a love - hate relationship with rhodos.
I hated them, because they invaded Killarney National Park and beyond, showing no mercy for indigenous plants and trees.I love them, because come May, they will bloom in al their glory and delight me with an abundant display of colour.
Now, in our own garden, well established rhododendrons show off their lovely flowers and atract all the bees from the neighbourhood.
You can't but love them !
Buzz, buzz, buzzing !
One of my all time favourites (I have many) is the Foxglove.
The picture below shows some that grew wild last year in the woodland just 'behind' the fence.
When they appear in our garden, I nourish them (psychologically - they don't need to be wrapped in cotton wool) and I abide my time until they grace me with their beauty.
Where ever you may be, I hope you enjoy the late spring flowers as much as I do.
