Last weekend we were at a barbecue at friends here in West Sussex. I had a rhododendron feast. Part of their garden was planted a hundred years ago and contains voluptuous mature shrubs covered with every hue of rhododendron flowers. In ancient woodlands these non native invasive plants are considered the Beast. But in a garden they are definitely Beauty. It was simply stunning to quietly wander down the different paths lined with rhododendron flowers and admire all the different shades of colour. Here are just a few that I admired.
