Rhododendron in bloom on the BPW #WW


DSC_4595 rhododendron blooms

The rhododendron was at their peak in the lower elevations of the Blue Ridge Parkway when we were there at the end of May. We had hoped to return, since this time but DH’s work schedule has not permitted us to do that.

Interestingly, I noticed last month our neighbors’ rhododendrons looked gorgeous. I didn’t think they would do well in our area, but they looked really nice. I think I want to plant some on the bank in our back yard, so I can say I’d like to wake up in the morning where the rhododendron grow



Who knew there was a song about rhododendron? Not me! And the lyrics even mention my home state, West Virginia. Isn’t that cool? The whole thought of growing rhododendron in our backyard is for the privacy these dense plants offer but it would be a glorious sight to see from my kitchen window to see their beautiful blooms each morning.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fototastic day! 😉


Have a fototastic day!



I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.
