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!
