Gone with the Rain

May 26, 2010

I promised to show the big rhododendron bushes at the east front corner of the post office, and here they are before rain, wind, and time got the better of them.

They were beautiful, but they're basically gone now.

We'll have to remember the rhodies until next year. There are still a few left, and there are many other lovely flowers around town. However, I think the main flowering of the gorgeous local rhododendrons has finished for the year - and it's certainly been an amzaingly colorful and profuse year for them.

I'll keep my eyes open for more flower shots because they've been a lot of fun. But at least today we're expecting more rain.

A shame they can't last longer.

They are beautiful!

But you do need rain to get flowers. :)

They are so huge and beautiful! Well (clink of imaginary glass) here's to next year's beautiful flowers!!!

Our rhodies, also lush and beautiful this year, have melted away in the rain as well. I hear this weekend we're in for a respite? Yay!!!

I guess like so many things in our lives, we need to enjoy the moment and the beauty these flowers bring and move on...but it can be hard sometimes...and what we wouldn't give for their color and scent during midwinter?
