Bow, wow, wow! Had to go to the mountains so my humans could plant their bedding plants. Last time it was March and the leaves were just beginning to green. When we went back for a week from mid to late May, it was summer. The Rhododendrons were blooming, but most of the spring blooms were over. However, above us, about 6000 ft, the leaves were just coming out. The Rhododendrons won't bloom up there until June.
You have to look really, really hard to see me! Below is the picture as we are heading home.
