  3. That's a lovely bloom color!

    The first photos are large enough to see the details. I use a MacBook Air with an 11" screen, so I have to scroll to view the larger photos.

  4. Wow what a beautiful color! I love that sweet spot between orange, pink, and yellow. The really big pics take a long time to load for me (guess I have a slow connection!) but I'm willing to wait...

  9. I'm not a great lover of rhododendrons (I think I was dragged round to many country estates as a child) but "Honey Butter" has a lovely combination of colours within each flower and looks great in your garden, Tatyana. Are you going to keep it in the pot?

  10. Tatiana, I also bought a new rhododendron "Mandarin light"! It only has a different color, and didn't yet bloom. Your rhododendron "Honey Butter" is very beautiful!

  13. I visit your blog because of your beautiful photos and for the fact that they are shown big. There is nothing worse than photos of a beautiful gardens that are postage stamp size. Go big!

  14. The name alone is an attraction, and the gorgeous color lives up to my expectations!. Great photos in either size!

  16. I love those colors. I have one similar except that as the blossoms age they lose all their pink. Yours is much nicer. I love the pictures in either size but bigger is always better. LOL

  17. The color is just exquisite ~ I understand why it came home with you!! I love large photos even tho I reduce the size of mine so they don't get reused without my permission.

  18. The rhodo is beautiful - a gorgeous colour. Your house and garden are beautiful too. Enjoy the sunshine
    Best wishes

  19. Hi Tatyana, I'm just getting caught up with your blog, and I want to vote for smaller image sizes. I'm discouraged from reading your blog when it takes an hour or more for my computer to load the large photo files, and I also can't fit the whole photo on my laptop screen at once. Maybe a compromise would be to use smaller images on the blog but have the option for people to click on them to get to the larger version. I do love the rhododendron! -Jean

    Thanks Tatyana, great pictures. I don't carry a lot of rhodies here at the nursery but honey butter is a winner. Besides having a great flower the foliage is really pretty as well.
    I like the bigger pictures. I like to see all the little details in the gardens and flowers. Wonderful garden as well.

    Hope to see you again and I will be ordering more Honey Butter. You know I ordered it because my dog is named butter. Had to be a great plant with a name like honey butter.
