Deadheading the Rhododendron

In my annual tradition of a therapeutic exercise, I enjoy an hour or so over several days of deadheading, or removing the expired flowers from our purple Rhododendron. As this site will tell you, http://www.rhododendron.org/pruning.htm, deadheading is certainly not required, but you may find yourself enjoying the practice, it is repetitive and peaceful, allowing me to enter my own thoughts.

Here I come you shriveled up dry purple flowers. Get ready to join the compost.
