    In the Wharton Grove, right next to the Rhododendron auriculatum whose buds seem even less open than two weeks ago, is a shrub we can't remember if we've seen before. The flowers aren't quite open yet. Hairs are a little deceptive - they didn't feel as fuzzy as they look, though they weren't prickly either.

    Try more photos in a week or two? I suspect they may be flower spikes developing, rather than individual flowers.
