GARDEN PHOTOS TAKEN OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS, RHODODENDRONS, PRIMULAS, HYDRANGEAS AND FRIENDS

by Gay Klok in the garden of "Kibbenjelok"
 

These photographs are taken in the flower gardens and show my favorite areas and flowers


 

Rhododendrons flourish in the moist atmosphere and acid soil in the "Old Apple Orchard".   This garden was begun in 1988  and was an original apple orchard.   The fruit trees marched up the area in long lines, like soldiers marching in formation
 


 

The Hydrangeas also enjoy the moist atmosphere, in the same "Orchard garden"
 


 

Close-up of one of my favorite Rhododendrons "Nuttallii" that not only has beautiful trumpet flowers but a heavenly perfume too
 


 

We have built grass and brown gravel paths to make the strolling around the garden easy for our many visitors
 


 

Also a favourite of mine Rhododendron "Cis" in the second rhododendron garden
 
 
 


 

Primulas, Rowans, Manferns and Hydrangeas give me enormous pleasure every Spring
 


 

The red and pink Hymalayan Primulas romp in the damp conditions on the border of a rhododendron bed
 
 


 

Japanese maples, American hybrid Rhododendrons, Gunneras and Birch trees in the "top" Rhododendron garden
 


 

But I really love the delicate blooms of specie Rhododendrons
 


 

And show me a white flower with perfume and I will swoon!!!!
 


 

And I enjoy the various shades of pink and orange too
