Aldgate, a village in the hills, has shops along one side of the
main street, parking, cunningly concealed under massive tree,
on the other as well as a bit of lawn and a picnic table
and an almost vertical garden climbing up a steel slope.
A perfect setting for massed rhododendrons under the shelter
of the trees.
I found this pink one particularly charming
even in the difficult lighting of brilliant sun and part shade.
Such a nice place to stop with off-road shaded parking.
