Rhododendrons have a bad press due to R.ponticum being such a thug when it gets loose in the wild. The hybrids however are well behaved, and bring us stunning colour, forms, and even fragrance from some. This blue flower of the dwarf rhody Bluetit is one of our oldest plants, now around 45 years old. The vivacious pink Linda is a popular lady, a riot of colour; others are more discrete, with exquisite detail.
We have hordes of sparrows on the farm .. lots of busy wee birds, raising their young.
Here is one having a wee rest from the constant foraging for voracious appetites and enjoying the sunshine.
