Welcome to the April Virtual Sketch Date! This month's reference is supplied by Jeanette Jobson. This is a rhododendron bud on an ancient bush outside my window. The bud opens up into a pale lavender pink bloom and is so beautiful and never lasts long enough it seems.

Following the normal schedule, all entries are due by Saturday, April 24th and should be posted on your blog and/or on the VSD Flickr group. If you are posting your entry on Flickr please use the tag VSD_Apr2009.

What you need to know...
  • The results post will be posted on Sunday, April 25th.
  • After you have posted your entry on your blog, come here and enter your name and the URL for your VSD blog post into the Mr. Linky widget. Then press enter. (As always, please link directly to your specific VSD post and not to your blog's main page.)

I am so glad that you decided to use Mr Linky, it is so simple to use.

Thanks Jeanette for the lovely photo, you really are lucky to have such a wonderful Rhododendron bush in your garden. Spring must be so rewarding to you.
