The Rhododendrons are even more spectacular near the Fishpond than they were last year.

They look really beautiful and the flowers seem to last a long time, unlike the Cherry Blossom. Thanks for the photograph Dennis - you do get about, even by Shank's pony.

I've never had a rhododendron in the garden, but was given one as a retirement present last year - the pink-tipped cream flowers are gorgeous.
Haigh has always been well-known for these fantastic flowering bushes and they look wonderful.
Thank you Dennis, a lovely summery scene.
