Lady Cynthia

Recently my friend Jannice informed me of an item she’d seen on the BBC news.  In Ladysmith, a small town south of us on Vancouver island​​, a gigantic rhododendron was causing heads to turn. 

A local councillor was proposing that this shrub be promoted as a tourist attraction. The shrub, a version called Lady Cynthia, is 115 years old and was brought from Devon, UK by early settlers. The shrub now dwarfs the house of the current owners.

Today I drove to see it and took my auntie Jean with me for the day out. As you can see, Lady Cynthia was gorgeous to behold and awesome in its presence… much like my lovely lady.
