Our Fantastic Rhododendron in our Yard

The first Buds (5/3)
Sorry I haven't been around much this weekend--either on blogs or Facebook.  My surgery went FINE --and I was home by 2 pm the same day.  However,  I did have a 'rough' weekend --with quite a bit of pain and nausea.  I cannot take those powerful pain pills they give us (makes me nauseated) ---so I resorted to Tylenol, which didn't do very good.  Then I developed a very sore throat --and let me tell you how hard it is to cough after having surgery in your tummy.  GADS!!!!  BUT--with each passing day,  life is getting better and better... Thanks for all of your kind words, thoughts, prayers and love...

In Friday's post,  I told you that I would share more photos of our beautiful Rhododendron, which seems to be prettier this year than ever before.  It was wonderful for me to sit inside and not only watch the birds eating in the Bird Kitchen,  but also to see the gorgeous blooms on our Rhody.  Hope you enjoy my photos...  Click on them for larger views.

Sorry there are so many photos --but I couldn't decide which ones I liked the best.  SO--I just showed you many of them, with my favorites being larger than the others... BUT--I love them all,  taken during all times of the day/evening.  Just absolutely GORGEOUS.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!!

Have a wonderful Monday.

Hugs,
