What a riot of colour. Maureen must have been in her element
Brian Walbey: We both were, I took goodness knows how many photos and Maureen took quite a few.

In a quarry ... just goes to show, where one can go with a positive mindset. Beautiful.
Brian Walbey: It's not a large quarry but it is full of these plants and shrubs, all of which flower like this between early May and late June.
Such a delight.
I have just bought a dwarf rhododendron with a father's day gift voucher from our Helen. It is an early flowering one that should,hopefully, flower in February
Brian Walbey: That should brighten the garden up in Winter, although I believe Rhodas can spread quite easily if not kept in check.
