Thanks Hetty. We have several local rhodie nurseries here and they are all new to me so I enjoyed going to those nurseries in bloom season.

Where I lived in the South of England before, the Rhododendrons were glorious. I miss them (but not enough to move back Hilarious! )

We also have some amazing Rhodies here in Seattle, which (weather wise), is very similar to S England!
I'll share photos as they bloom!

I think the whole Pacific coast, well, northern Calif. and up, is great for rhodies! This was an old one I took a picture of in British Columbia, there was an entire overgrown former personal garden of them hidden in the woods.

I remember that pic Sue. Love it! I thought it would make a great subject for a painting. Maybe with a couple of ladies from the south of England sipping tea?

Margaret, not sure if you're referring to Sue's or mine, mine were seen walking along a trail in the woods and then suddenly for several miles were these amazing Rhodies, pinks and whites! To think that these are wild and in this day and age is also really incredible!
Cheers
