The National Rhododendron Gardens (The Georgian Rd, Olinda, Victoria 3788, Australia), are host to brilliantly coloured blooms of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, cherries and daffodils. Seasonal changes ensure the gardens are a delight all year around. When not in bloom, you can still soak in the beauty of rich bark textures, seed capsules, foliage shapes and beautiful fragrance as you stroll through the grounds.

I read Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca back when I was a late teen. I always remembered she described the rhododendrons on the path to Manderley; I'd never heard of such a flower and her description was so vivid. In real life of course they are but I'm sad to see the bloom so heavy they droop. I lived in one house with them in the garden and I picked a few to put on the table when friends were coming over for dinner one day. While eating, we started to notice an ant or two on the table, then more and more. The ants had been hiding in the rhododendrons. A little hazard of using garden flowers on your table!ReplyDelete
Remember the Rhododendron so well, because we rented a house in the forest in Hlland and I was pregnant with my second one. The owner had a huge, at least 8 foot Rhododendron standing in the garden!ReplyDelete
That's a beauty! The purple really stands out against the green.ReplyDelete
