Glad you have some "spring" out there !!
Right now it's still Feb. here. Should clear up in a few days. Last Thursday was the worst Ice covering of the truck of the winter !
Vermont has had so much snow I likely won't make a trip up to move things for a month.
On Ng, I'm not "excited about it" I watch it with interest "interest meaning" it keeps reminding me of "how not to lose your trading piggy bank" !!!! By leaving it alone.
On Rhododendrons - I never needed an outside thermometer. When the leaves curled up ... It was too frigging cold !!!
Keep in touch, Lee
