Front deck

I took all of the Rhododendron photos from here, on the front deck.

The deck was covered in maple seeds from the huge maple tree.
I don’t spend nearly as much time out here as I would like to.  My health issues keep me inside far too much.
Most of my photo taking is done in short trips outside.  When I was healthier I would spend almost all of my time outside.  I miss the things I used to be able to do, more than words could ever say.  If there is something you want to do, you should do it while you can, because you never know what tomorrow might hold.

Rhododendron – Part Two

These are not quite as nice as the photos I put in Part one of this post, but I wanted to include them all the same.

I would have loved to have done some close photography of these in macro mode, but they are located on the side of my house that is at the edge of a very steep bank.  Something my legs/balance just aren’t up to at this time.  So these will have to do.

For some reason this particular bunch of blossoms below had me thinking of wedding flowers.  How lovely and unique it would be, to have a May wedding with Rhododendron bouquets.  (Assuming you didn’t have allergies of course.  lol)
