You are all spared another series of low tide pictures. While I drove down there again, the rain drove me back to the car!
Instead some shots of the flowers captured when I actually went out to measure the space behind the garage for a possible storage shed.

The azaleas are gorgeous.
Pardon me, I don't mean to tell tales out of school, but if'in I'm'a not mistakin' . . . I believe those there look like beautiful Great Pacific Northwest - Spring Rhodie's !
Not that I'm pretending in any way to be a bona fide member of The American Rhododendron Society, and or any such similar society. But just sayin'. ;)

Love those white & red blossoms too! What are those?

Btw, those galvanized feeder troughs/stock tanks sure are nice for planting! :cool:
But so pricey nowadays. :confused:

Got the initial stock tanks on sale from Lowes and have added to them. They were not high enough off the ground and the drainage holes were getting plugged. Real fun digging out enough soil to tip them and add more bricks under them. Three so far - I'm too old for this!!!

Peonies, and yes, Rhodies. A spirea perhaps,

Those flowers are pretty. What are they? I know they're not azaleas.
Cabbaggie ones - Aeonium
Bluish Purple - may be Delphinium

And those identifications are brought to you by LENS. Due to my knee injury I did not circulate down the ramps for closer views. The Getty Center garden is absolutely incredible. My sister is always willing to visit it. Museum is free. They get you with parking - $25.00.

Our Azaleas usually precede our Rhodies and look like a smaller version. Not a problem. As Google just explained: All azaleas are Rhodies but not all Rhodies are azaleas!!!!

Went to a sort of play. Magician who weaves magic into his story telling.

And then the Stainless Steel would go well in my kitchen but what an ugly thing
