Moving a massive Rhodo



Bradley bought a new truck and helped move this massive rhododendron from a friends house to ours.



It was enormous and Quentin wasn't happy or convinced that it was worth moving.



But after much labor the boys got it into place and I'm so thrilled, it's beautiful and creates a great focal point in the yard..... Plus Quentin now agrees it was worth the effort.

I love the truck pic! The Rhodo makes the truck look small...

i'm jealous! i really want some rhodos in our front yard but derek said the little ones are just too gangly looking, a mature one would be awesome.

we are working on our front yard landscaping. i should take a picture, although i'm paranoid to put our front yard on our blog b/c i don't want strangers to know where we live :)

you gotta be careful when you have a beautiful baby girl ;0)

My Mom has a house for sale with mature perennials and the whole house will be demolished so I'll be taking a look and if their are some good plants I'll let you know and you can come dig them up, or check craigs list too sometimes people list plants they have to get rid of.
