Motif Monday: splendored rhododendrons

Some rhododendrons can last hundreds of years and wild and rare species can be found in Massachusetts. Do you have a favorite stretch?

My mom called them rhodies. I’ve heard others use the nickname rhodos. Have you?

Vinca Minor

Spring Blooms at our house.

Vinca, originally uploaded by captjoe06.

We used vinca minor as a groundcovering. I like the way it looks but its a PITA to weed between the stuff. Maybe I’m doing something wrong, I dunno.

Any of you gardening freaks got any suggestions to keep the weeds from growing among my vinca?
