Not only are these rhododendrons glorious to look at, the scent is AMAZING. I had no idea the orange ones were perfumed.

Today is a bit overcast and rain is forecast, a bit sad really because we had a wonderful week of sunshine and now, here it is, the weekend and wet weather. I have lots of projects to do as usual and a lot of internet catching up:) so I am ok with it.

Last night I saw The Proposal with Sandra Bullock, fun and fun. I enjoy her. I also saw My Life in Ruins last week and enjoyed it too. A bit over the top and hokey dialogue but at the end of the movie you feel good:) I grew to like the characters and of course the scenery was gorgeous Greece! Two light happy flicks. Mental bubblegum as my dad used to say.

Here is something I came across in a blog I enjoy and found it interesting. We are all doing sit ups the wrong way! Here's how to do them to protect your back! Watch the video also.

Awesome! I have a bad low back so I don't do many traditional sit ups. I'm always looking for good alternatives. Thanks!

I love those flowers, here I have bought the white, pink, and yellow....haven't seen orange.

Beautiful photo!

Another beautiful post! I think I can smell those flowers through my computer, or maybe it's the flowering tea!

I actually did watch the video! I'll get on that right away! LOL And I marked it as one of my favs so when I actually do start doing sit up, I can reference it! Hope, I live on hope!

I was just up in Maine and I saw a lot of this color of Rhododendrons there! I had never seen that color before!

Liked that video - maybe I'll try a couple of those!

I've never seen the orange Rhodies before either. Beautiful. Much more my taste than the varieties I'm used to seeing.

I love orange rhododendrons. Being my first June in Nova Scotia, I'm particularly blown away by the lupins. It's just unbelievable.

Wow, great info, I have neck issues with crunches and this might help! Also, never knew there were ORANGE rhododendron, we don't have them around here, how beautiful!

I never saw orange rhododendrons before --they are so pretty!

I like the expression "Mental Bubblegum"and also enjoy "feel good" movies :=)

I learned how to do sits ups that way in a yoga class. I really should be doing them as my middle has been getting thicker each year after I passed 50!
