*Once again, I returned to Indian Park to check in on the large rhododendron bushes along Mill Creek. I know that they are about to bloom very soon. As you can see, the buds are coming along very nicely. They had just been well watered by a passing thunderstorm, shortly before I took this photo.
The General Burrows covered bridge provided a beautifully colored background for this flowering bud. I can’t wait to see some fully blossomed purple azalea flowers against the same backdrop. We’ll see if I can can catch that image in a few days.*
