Behold, a 120+ year old rhododendron
They rarely grow into anything larger than a shrub, yet alone a tree!

I’ll never have an answer to what makes me special. I remember many years ago, my mother said to me, ‘Considering that you have no talent, it’s really extraordinary where you’ve got.’ and that’s what I really believe to this day. I’ve always been self-conscious about my interviews, about my thinness, my tallness, my unattractiveness. My success — it still bewilders me. I never in my wildest dreams ever thought that maybe I’d be a great star.” Audrey Hepburn

Forever favourite.
