This is a lovely rhododendron that blooms in our yard in early May. It’s similar in appearance to the popular PJM, which was named for Peter J. Mezitt, founder of Weston Nurseries. His son Ed developed both it and Olga Mezitt, named for Ed’s mother.

I used Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Classical Soft Focus and Contrast Color Range, plus a layer of Topaz Simplify with the Buzz Sim setting. The texture is Summer Garden from French Kiss Textures.

I am a photographer living in Massachusetts and my passion is flowers. I take the time to reveal the special beauty of each flower and I hope that comes through as you look at my work.

    I just love these and can’t wait until they begin to bloom. I know a place that they just line the road and I want to go there!

  • Thank you so much for taking the time to look at and kindly comment on so many of my photos. I love these too, and I’m looking forward to seeing them in bloom here in early May!
