Lavender Rhododendron

This is one that I definitely look forward to every year. The blossoms are very large and strikingly beautiful.

My favorite attribute is that the leaves stay a nice green all year round (even in winter) as it’s a woody, evergreen species.

I just wish the blooms lasted longer!

    This flower has really gotten prettier over the years. I remember when the bush was so much smaller. It’s so beautiful when it blooms now. Nice to see you posting again Jen. 🌺💕

    1. Because I’m not blogging very much and unsure of what I want to do in the near future, I downgraded to a free plan which seems to have been a mistake. Most of my links aren’t working. WP failed to tell me that this would happen. 😂

      1. Bummer about the links! I certainly understand moving to the free side though. That’s why I’m still on just wordpress 🙂

        I’ll keep in mind that links don’t migrate both ways if I ever decide to go dotcom…

  2. Gorgeous!! ❤ I was so excited to do more of these Flower Friday posts again once the weather got nice again and I haven't done a single one yet. lol I'll have to do some soon. I always love seeing your flower posts. 🙂 Your Rhododendron are absolutely lovely. I have a pink one in my yard and I love it, too. I'm with ya on wishing the flowers lasted longer though! 😛
