Frigid Weather? Ask a Rhododendron

Anyone with a rhododendron in the yard can check how cold it is by looking at the leaves. Here is how the leaves looked when the temperature rose to 40 degrees for a while.

But when the Arctic chill came our way, the leaves curled up. When they get tight as a pencil, bundle up!
Observing nature is fun for children and it never loses its charm for people of any age.

Love the rhododendron here in NJ...they are everywhere...In Upstate NY only a few are scattered about here and there.
