Spring Flowers

This fuchsia rhododendron bloomed for just one week in May. The blossoms were huge clusters 8 to 10 inches across, individual blooms about 4 inches across. I have named the color “impossibly pink.” The bush had languished for years, but this year it doubled in size and was covered with those unbelievable blossoms.

My photo is okay artistically, typical of the genre “pretty flower photos taken by amateur gardeners.” However, those blooms were one of Mother Nature’s magnificently perfect artistic creations.
