The recent wet weather is needed in the garden. We were starting to think about watering all the newly planted areas and even some of the large Rhododendron.

This is a similar pattern to last year which is perfect for rhododendron to set their flowers fro next season. Could be the second “year of Rhododendron” next year.

The last couple of days has helped with plenty of rain so much so even the ducks are coming to visit the garden!
