Rhododendren at Home

Of the things one can count on at the Oregon coast, certainly it is lots of rain and more of the Rhododendron!

These photos were all taken in my yard or within a 5 min walk! It is a spring paradise. Actually our first variety bloomed in January and the last will go to August, but May is prime!

                                            This is a wild "fern garden" by a little stream.

                                           This bank of blossoms is 12 feet tall!
