Over the winter, I read a D.E. Stevenson book set in Scotland, Celia’s House. The descriptions of the scenery were lovely and as the Spring transitioned into Summer the characters packed up a picnic and headed out to the woods to “see the rhodies.” Rhododendron season was a long way away when I read the novel in January but May has arrived and it’s rhodie season around here.
These rhododendrons live on either side of my front steps, greeting the day when we leave for school in the morning.
And welcoming us home each evening.
May, you are lovely.
