Rhododendrons

Yesterday we were at a park closeby. This Rhododendron tree was in full bloom, the branches were quite low and I was lucky to get some close shots of the flowers.

Such a hardy bush produces very delicate flowers. I marvel at how they withstand the weather sometimes. This is a wonderful photo.
