Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 28th May, 2023)
Gorgeous, beautiful and what a great time of year. A lovely start to Sunday, you've got everyone feeling good Dennis, believe me.
What a vibrant coloured Rhodie...all those flowers on it too...amazing
I love the old gnarled trunk it’s nearly bent double holding those beautiful boughs of flowers. It’s a gorgeous display of flaming pink!
That feel good Sunday Dennis.
I agree with Veronica. The trunk may be old and gnarled but the blossom is fresh and new every year. A bit of sun and warmth works wonders. Beautiful photo, Dennis
What a beautiful Rhodi..mine is just the ordinary lilac and although very pretty in full bloom,it is nowhere near as beautiful as this one..it's good for the eyes...thank you Dennis.
We can thank China for these spectacular bushes, Britain must have been a very dull and depressing country in the olden days.
Quite a number of foreign plants are very invasive including Japanese Knotweed, Himalayan Balsam and Rhododendron Porticum. These are the worst offenders.
“Some of these plants are so invasive that there are laws in place to limit their spread in the wild where they can damage local eco systems. “
Beautiful to look at but dangerous!
Reminds me I need to dig some of the Bluebells up!
Yer said yer was digging them bluebelles up tother day Veronica!
I bet yer’ve bin soaking the sun up in the garden haven’t yer?
I can just see yer, sitting there with an ice lolly and thinking “l’ll dig some of them bluebelles up when I’ve finished this lolly”
But they’re still there aren’t they Veronica.
O for shame Veronica, for shame.
How did that old song go?
Lazy bones sleeping in the sun
Never going to get the day’s work done.
Never get the day’s work done
Sleeping in the noonday sun.
Well ‘ave bin at it t’day Dtease that’s after swimmin’ 25 lengths of yon pool! Anyroad am not sure which is which so ‘ave dug both up just in case! ;o)
DTease, how dare you suggest Veronica was soaking up the sun and eating ice-lollies like a lazy bones with her spade and hoe lying idle at the side of her! The things some people say on Wigan World! She was doing no such thing. She was down the pub with me!
I was keeping that a secret Irene about goin’ int’ White Lion but never mind it is Bank Holiday and it’s warm and sunny for a change.. ;o))
Beautiful photo,for a beautiful Sunday. Your photos Dennis, always make everyone happy!!
