We got our first rhododendron plant yesterday. I hulked up and carried it home, it was heavy. Everyone wants to talk to you on the street while you are carrying home a big shrub too. They don’t see that I’m out of breath, I’m going to fall over and I can’t see in front of me. I gave some shouts of “Thank you, yes, it is beautiful!”, “Yes, it will be blooming soon!”, “Yes, rhododendron!” and to the man who kept telling me that it was his plant “No sir, (laugh nervously) this is indeed my plant I bought”.
This is a reenactment of me carrying it home. Isn’t it BEAUTIFUL?
Here’s some random inspiration images I found. This is my dream. ONE DAY.
