Pawpa's Newest Acquisition

Pawpa loves rhododendrons. The peoples up the road live in big houses and they have peoples come in trucks to mow their lawns and arrange their gardens. Since they pay for perfect landscaping, Pawpa often finds discarded bushes dumped unceremoniously off the road into the woods by peoples who don't want to wait for them to recover just because they don't look nice. Pawpa found a rhody to rescue yesterday and brought it home.

Sure some of it is beat up but look closely, there are new shoots on it already. Pawpa thinks he can save it. He might be right.

How can anybody throw out a rhody?!

Hope it is in better hands now!

You must have lots of land for all of the plants in your yard!
