Wednesday's woes....My e-mail no longer functions, my blog list has vanished. I called my tech guru for help (thank you Eve of Sunny Side Up I don't know what I would do without you} Eve discovered a partial list of the blogs I follow, but please bare with me while I find the rest of you! Thank you all so much for the advice on the rhododendrons. When our home was first built it's original color was a weathered grey stain with blue trim, the bright colored rhododendrons accented the house nicely. Now that Dog Trot Farm is barn red, no so much. I do however, enjoy the "tucked in" feeling that my now large rhododendrons offer. I do need to put some serious thought into what I am going to replace them with (weeping pea?). Many of the "weeping" varieties of trees do not tolerate wind, so I need to take this into consideration as well as the southerly exposure. Thank you all again, I am open to any and all ideas, Julie of Dog Trot Farm.
