Birth of a Bloomer

The rhododendron is the state flower of West Virginia and we have a lovely large bush in our front yard.  I chose one bud to photograph each day through fully bloomed....amazing.

Ta - da!  And here she is with some of the rest of the beautiful bloomers!

A happy sight each time I pull into my driveway....ahhhh.


  1. Well - this is BLOOMIN' WONDERFUL!!

  2. LOVE this! What a cool idea! I've noticed them when I drive by - very pretty. I wish they would smell good too. lol

  3. Gorgeous, thanks for sharing! Amazing and beautiful images!

  5. Wow! This is BRILLIANT. I LOVE rhodos.


  6. This has been a stellar year for the rhododendrons and many of my neighbors have huge old bushes growing in a stunning variety of colors. Really, some are big enough to hide cars or small houses in...thickets I think they are called when they get to that point.
