Watch Her Open...

From Bud...
 




 
To Beautiful Bloom
My Purple Rhododendrons!!
 
Now, technically, these belong to neighbor Helen.
But because they are on the property line, I consider them to be shared!

Lovely! We planted some earlier this year. Doubt they will bloom this year, but we look forward to next year! Your "swan" ride looked like so much fun! So glad things are looking up at your beloved Jersey shore!
