                                          Viburnum tomentosum "Mariesii"
                                          flowers in the background.  This is
                                          a very useful shrub with its layered
                                          branches upon which the white sterile
                                          flat flowers flutter like giant butterflies
                                          In front the small rock Rhododendron
                                          will be adding a dash of red in a few days.
                                          The creeping rosemary is a pleasant contrast
                                            One of the many scented Rhododendrons
                                          with Magnolia xloebneri "Leonard Messel"
                                          in front
                                            Cornus nuttallii is a lovely white
                                          Canadian Dogwood
                                           In a quiet corner of the "Home Orchard"
                                         garden several "Ukon" cherries give one
                                         pleasure with their dancing green-white
                                         clusters of flowers.   Through the branches
                                         you may see the first of the orange deciduous
                                         azaleas coming into bloom.   I have many of
                                         these strongly coloured plants and I will show
                                         you how beautiful they are in next month's
                                         Tasmanian Journal.   I keep them away from
                                         the other types of Rhododendrons.
