Common Beauty

Having just moved next door to The Point Defiance Park Rhododendron Garden, I’m sure I overdid rhododendron pictures last year, so I’ve been avoiding them this year.

However, I’m about to leave for Colorado next week, it’s peak rhododendron season here in the Pacific Northwest, and there’s no way I’m going to go a whole year without featuring at least one rhody picture.

Here’s a picture of an “unremarkable” rhody from my front yard. Of course, I love everyday rhodies as much as, or more than, the exotic varieties.
