Rhododendron Augustinii at Lakewold by 


Each spring a lovely former estate is covered in the bountiful blossoms of rhododendrons, azaleas, and tulips. This particular blue was breathtaking. I hope you enjoy it, too.

Besides photographing things I find beautiful, I love to paint in watercolor! It can be loads of fun, creating its own beautiful color combinations as they run together on the paper, or it can be surprisingly independent, doing “its own thing” where you pretty much have to give up control – one never knows! That’s all just part of the fun!

    Gorgeous!!

  • Thank you so much, Ann! (As you can probably tell, I’m now realizing that so many of my replies were put in the wrong box all those weeks ago, so now I’m trying to “catch up” appropriately!) Thanks for your patience, my friend! – Pat

    Makes me long for Spring when I see these beauties, I only have one in my garden and it is a very deep red, sadly it only lasts a few days in flower, beautifully captured Pat,
    Regards, Rod.

  • Thanks for taking the time to view this rhody, Rod. I always so appreciate the kindness of your comments. I’m sorry your red ones last for only a short time. Ours seem to last for a number of weeks, if it’s not raining. Happy shooting today!

    I agree with Rod. Mine is pink and I am looking forward to the next spring. Hope to manage it like you did..

  • Actually, Dana, this rhody is in a nearby park – I’ve been trying to locate one just like it to put in my garden. I think many of us are already eager for spring to come! Thank you for commenting. – Pat
