The Magnolia that wasn't...

So, when the sun started to shine...I just wanted to be out in the yard getting my Vitamin D infusion.
The first thing I did was prune the trees just to the left of the front porch.  One is a hydrangea and the other was what I THOUGHT was a magnolia bush.  So, I pruned the HELL out of both of them.  The hydrangea seems to be rebounding.

Ummm...can't say that for the non-magnolia bush.  Turns out it is a rhododendron. I found that out by using this link from VA Tech.

Sooooo, instead of looking like this 

Mine looks like this

Uggh.  I have a lot to learn.
