I wasn't kidding when I said that every week or so there is a different rhododendron or azalea blooming in the yard - here are some more examples.
A rhododendron along the driveway. This is another one with huge flowers - about the size of teacup saucers.
A pink azalea with yellow flame in the middle along the back of the house. This one is highly scented:
Another pretty scented azalea - this one a gorgeous dark coral with yellow in the middle:
I love this picture against the sky! I am getting better at the different fidgety controls on my digital camera. This is a pink and yellow rhodoendron in the backyard.
This is one of my current favourites - a dark crimson rhododendron along the side of the house. The flowers on this one are very waxy and unlike any of the other rhododendrons I have seen in the yard:
And its next plot neighbour, a vanilla-white rhododendron:
A pink and yellow azalea in the front with some columbines starting to poke their way up:
This is another one of my all-over favourite azaleas - rose/coral pink in the middle and white on the outsides:
I seem to have a lot of azaleas with yellow in the middle right now - and yes, they are all separate varieties:
A sunny orange rhododendron along the driveway - and this one is almost the exact colour of Plus One's Tangerine Dream:
I also received my Project Colorswap Green package today from Erin [ http://bookishknitster.blogspot.com/ ] but the picture I took of it got washed out (so, I haven't perfected my use of said fidgety controls yet), so I will take another tomorrow and post it. Hopefully the Tobelorone will make it to tomorrow's photo session...
