This is blog is really part of the blog about lilacs, a sort of P.S.
I like other flowers of spring, too. I believe this is a rhododendron. It is growing in front of our house and I wake up every morning, now that we have the windows open, to hear bees buzzing in the flowers just beyond our bed. It's a nice sound as long as the bees stay in the flowers and away from John who is allergic to bee stings!
I'm going to look at this picture next May when I'm so hot I can hardly stand it! May when we've had eight solid months with absolutely no rain and there are no flowers to be found...May when we're all covered with heat rash....May when we can't stand to touch any body or be touched by any body....May when every body is short-tempered because they're so hot. Oh yes! I will definitely look at these pictures and think of more pleasant things than the heat.
