Hi everyone - I'm your Host for this month of November and our Plant Parade Challenge for November is;
RHODODENDRONS & AZALEAS




We are always looking for Hosts for our Plant Parades.
If you would like to Host a Plant Parade month, please put your name down on our Hosting List which you will find here: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/show...1396143&page=2
I am happy to answer any questions you may have, if you are new to Hosting a Plant Parade.


Guidelines for our Plant Parades
- Any size and any medium
- Choose a picture from those below, - from the Reference Image Library - or your own.
-Reveal day is 25th November 2016, you can chat and discuss as we go along but don't post your pics until then.

Here's some photos from my own garden - it's Spring in New Zealand at this time, and these photos have just been taken by me, today. They are all flowering in my garden at the moment.
You are welcome to use them OR you can choose from the RIL OR your own photos.

Thanks Christel! And the biggest surprise of all in my garden at the moment, are the vast amount of weeds, which seem to be multiplying daily!

Re: November 2016 Plant Parade Challenge

Gorgeous - one of my favourite groups Thanks Viv - and glorious examples from your garden ....... unfortunately our soil is not suitable - but there are lots at our holiday place. ..... even found one flowering last week - lonesome bloom - it should have been sound asleep!

Lovely rhodies and azaleas, Viv! Nice garden of delights you have, and lucky you to be in Spring now as we head on into cooler/cold weather. We are not able to grow them here.

Love them; great choice Vivien. Ours here in SE England have tight buds and are resting over the Winter. You have a beautiful garden and the references are a delight. Thank you.

Re: November 2016 Plant Parade Challenge

Pam - you will see others posting their artwork on the 25th, and I will probably be the first to post as NZ's time-zone is far in advance of the rest of the world.
Would you like me to PM you beforehand to remind you?
