My Rhododendron Thermometer

In front of my house there’s a large rhododendron bush.  A lovely part of the landscape, it also functions as an unofficial “thermometer”.

When I go out in the morning or when I look out the window, I get a sense of the day’s temperature by scoping out the bush.

When it’s cold the rhododendron’s leaves curl tightly.  The more leaves that are curled and the tighter the curl – the colder the temperature.

It wasn’t until I looked over for a read on the day’s temperature that I realized my poor bush was bowed beneath this mound of heavy snow.  It’s difficult to tell by the photo but my rhododendron bush is about a third of it’s usual height.

So without benefit of my rhododendron thermometer – it’s really chilly today.
