It’s Rhodie Time


THIS WEEK belongs to the rhododendrons. Surely they must be king of the flowers.

Seen in and around East Hampton, N.Y.:





I’m also pleased with my irises and perennial geraniums, below. The Deer-Out is holding them at bay.


And here’s an evergreen, low-maintenance, completely deer-resistant garden solution, below: the all-boxwood garden. It has a kind of a whimsical fairy-tale look, I think, very Hobbit-y — but as much as I love boxwoods, I could never limit myself to a monolithic planting scheme like that.

    I was in the Hamptons all weekend and could not stop looking at the gorgeous rhodies. They are so nice and for such a short period of time! We’ll have to meet this summer!

    The hailstorm we had last night really hastened their demise. I barely got to enjoy them!
