THE FIRST RHODODENDRON

This is a small rhodie we've had for several years. It seems to be a natural dwarf. I'm not sure what it's called. And it's an interesting color combo. The rose of the buds and the cream of the open flowers. It's close to the street and gets the most sun, so it's usually one the first of ours to bloom.

Gradually working my way in from the full bush.

We had off and on showers yesterday so the blossoms were still showing rain drops this morning.

Until we get to the closest shot of all.

The God/dess does do a miraculous job, Don't you think?

More wonderful photos! I love it when the rhododendrons are filled with bees and humming away as they work. --Cin

So many of our blooming plants here in Hooterville took a real hit when the frost hit.  Sad and not surprising -- which is how you could describe life in most of the "red states".  SIGH
