Let's start this post with our featured flower of the week. How can you live in the rainy Northwest and NOT have a rhododendron in your garden? I used to hate rhododendrons because everyone had one or two or more. They were huge plants that people lined up against their house's foundations so they blocked the windows on the house. Then I visited Mexico and Hawaii and I realized everyone didn't have them, at least they didn't have them as big and showy as the ones I grew up with. It was then that I grew to appreciate them and planted a couple in my garden (not in front of a window, however!).
Speaking of garden, yes we made it to the Plant Sale last weekend! As I mentioned last week, I had already planted my fill for the year. That didn't stop me from sneaking in one more plant; a zucchini of course. Just like with the rhododendron, every NW vegetable garden needs a zucchini!
