I thought of doing rhododendrons but i'm so glad I didn't as my photo would have looked pathetic next to your amazing shots!

A very welcome return. This are spectacular close ups.

I have a lost flower that needs a proper name on my blog today.

But as colorful as it is, it doesn't compare with the beauty here on your blog. Nice photography.

John said...

So beautiful! What incredible detail and colour.

I love rhodos. The first time I discovered them, we'd just moved to Victoria, BC, right on New Years Day. A few days after we moved, I was walking around downtown and was amazed to find these bushes that were actually budding. In January! I just had to find out what they were. I've been in love with them ever since.

the Rhododendron is West Virginia's state flower and I have never had any luck having it grow here in Chicagoland as the winters are too cold. This is lovely!

These are indeed lovely flowers. I was never able to grow them here for some reason. They always die.
