I am always late to the photo meme first of the month. I took these photos on Sunday, July 3, and it’s almost July 5th when they are going online. It was raining and pouring and drizzling on Sunday, so the wet adds a nice look to the shrub.
As the rhododendron bloomed in mid May, there is a part of me that is ready to move to a different theme for first of the month. I did learn this month that the rhododendron forms new buds quickly, as you can see in the above photo. I have been considering photographing one particular shelf of my kitchen. When August comes, you will find out if I go through with that plan.
