Rhododendron – Part Two

These are not quite as nice as the photos I put in Part one of this post, but I wanted to include them all the same.

I would have loved to have done some close photography of these in macro mode, but they are located on the side of my house that is at the edge of a very steep bank.  Something my legs/balance just aren’t up to at this time.  So these will have to do.

For some reason this particular bunch of blossoms below had me thinking of wedding flowers.  How lovely and unique it would be, to have a May wedding with Rhododendron bouquets.  (Assuming you didn’t have allergies of course.  lol)

The Rhododendron is West Virginia’s official state flower.

This one beside my home looked particularly lovely this year.
