“Flower of the Day (February 26, 2015) – Rhododendron” My Rhodee

It amazes me each year that this majestic flower comes back to life and fills my window with majestic blooms.  They begin as a deep purple bud that opens into the best shade of lavender that makes my grey siding just come to life.  I really can’t take credit for this old bush as it was here when we bought the house in 1991.  The owners before me must have enjoyed it as much as I do.  I have taken pictures of it from my front door, from my office window and up close as you see in my picture.  My favorite color of the Rhododendron is the lavender.  One can not help but notice as they see my pictures of flowers.

I am so ready to see some life back in this great give God gave us.  I am sure it is also wishing the cold and snow would leave so that it could once again shine in all it’s glory.  Thanks Cee for suggesting this great picture of spring that I so look forward to sharing with all my neighbors as they pass by.
