We've got some things blooming in our yard! A scrappy lilac bush, a beauty bush (I think), a healthy peony about to bust into bloom, and this plant, which is right outside my desk. I couldn't figure out what it was:
Until it opened up and I realized it's a rhododendron! A pretty one too! Rhodys don't usually do well here in Spokane, nothing like the lush plants they are in Seattle. So this is a happy surprise.
