I Heart Macro – Rhododendrons


 I ♥ Macro Sunday!

I have always loved  rhododendrons.  Here’s a worthless trivia factoid: The official Washington State flower is the rhododendron.  But that’s not why I love them.  As a kid, my parents would sometimes take us to the Seattle arboretum.  They had old rhododendron bushes there that were as big as small trees.  We could hide under the rhododendrons and pretend we were in a house made of flowers.  Isn’t that just the greatest make-believe scenario:  Living in a house made of flowers!

  1. Gorgeous shots of an amazingly beautiful flower!! I love them too and many of them are in their full magnificense right now. We had one of those small trees in our front yard where I grew up! As children a bunch of us would go under and in to the center and play, like a little secret hideaway in the safety of our front yard.
