Blooming Rhododendron

I was working in the yard this morning and just as I walked around the east side of the house, I was blinded by our rhododendron.
Some people like azaleas, and some love roses, but I think my favorite blooming bush is the rhododendron.
Jilda asked her sister Nell how to propagate these bad boys and as it turns out, all you have to do is to take a limb close to the ground, scrape a little bark off the bottom and put a brick on the limb so that it stays in contact with the earth.
When I looked today, I saw that indeed the limbs had roots so I'll be planting the new plants in the morning.
I put cages around the tomatoes and hoe'd the cabbage today.
All and all, it was a very good day.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
