I think that the Rhodies are the last blush of Spring.

This year,
they were the last to bloom and they are gorgeous.

In this neighborhood they are very old and big...
Twelve feet by twelve feet is pretty average.
Nobody ever prunes them for some reason.
I cut mine back to five feet high...they survived.
No time is wasted cutting back Hydrangeas, Lilacs  and Dogwoods.

This is a Lace cap Hydrangeas..they bloom all summer.

The Lilacs are almost finished.
I'll miss their smell.
There is a new Lilac that blooms all summer.

A Dwarf Rhododendron

This looks like an Azalea but the flowers are much bigger,
they are always this color and aren't bushy like Azaleas.
(more little tree like)
It is an Azalea Mollis which is a deciduous Rhododendrum.

I hope there is some color in your life.

Hello, Missy! Gorgeous blooms and blossoms. We have one rhodo taller then our house. Hubby does not like to prune them. They are lovely. Great photos. Enjoy your day and week ahead!
