Remember the new PJM Rhododendron we
Cool color, don't you think? They aren't in bloom any more; we had some pretty wicked storms rip through that took care of that. The high winds also made a lot of pinecones drop. Here's one of them:
I have no idea why Mom took that. Let's have a look around the side of the house, where I like to hang out with my kit-cat pals.
The Mohican Viburnum are in bloom! (That's the tall bush in the middle -- that one is about 6 feet tall!) I showed you those buds a couple weeks ago when they were still green - and now look at them!
Those blooms last a really long time!
Remember that sort of dirt area by the stairs? Mom planted some Dragon's Blood Sedum in there.
They are supposed to spread all over and later on will have bright red flowers on them. They'll stay real low. Mom is really happy with them. Me and Dave just like the name "Dragon's Blood"! How cool!
OK... let's go see what we can see on the lower deck, OK? You can usually find a shady, cool spot to relax - or a nice sun puddle to soak up some warmth. And over here in this corner...
...you can smell the Juddi Viburnum! I showed them to you when they were about to pop open - and look at them now!
I wish you could smell them; they have a beautiful scent.
I hope you feel nice and relaxed now. Have a Serene Sunday!
