Magenta Rhododendron by Pat Yager

Currently unavailable for purchase

This wonderful rhody is one of the last to bloom each spring in our garden, and seems to thrive under its canopy of tall fir trees. It seems to be quite happy with receiving only the late afternoon sun. I love to bring some of the huge blooms into the house and set them in a low vase, with only a few leaves poking out from around them.

Besides photographing things I find beautiful, I love to paint in watercolor! It can be loads of fun, creating its own beautiful color combinations as they run together on the paper, or it can be surprisingly independent, doing “its own thing” where you pretty much have to give up control – one never knows! That’s all just part of the fun!

    A lovely flower Pat and beautifully photographed. We used to grow them when we lived in England but I don’t think they would take too kindly to the sandy soil we have out here. Peter

  • Hi, Peter! I bet you really miss them! But now in Australia you’ve undoubtedly discovered all kinds of gorgeous plants that you didn’t have in England. I’m so pleased you like this one, and hope it brings back happy memories! – Pat
