Here is my first garden journal entry - the Rhododendron. This is a new shrub for me to nurture. I love it's oversized blooms and promise to do my best to keep this spring beauty coming back for many years! We had a few in our front yard when we moved into our home 3-1/2 years ago. They were facing the west and didn't take well to the heat. I have mine planted on the east side. Hopefully it will see a little reprieve. Always an experiment though...this gardening thing!
