This photo is actually from May, as is the one below.
It’s good I took photos in the middle of May, because if you look below, you will see what is left of my rhododendron flowers in early June.
Maybe it was the heat wave, or maybe they just don’t last very long. I’ve never paid much attention to the blooming of my rhododendron – it’s good I’m playing the First of the Month theme so I can observe.

The end of May photos are certainly beautiful. I’m glad you’ve included them. I love doing this each month and becoming more aware of the world around me.
The rhododendron was beautiful at the end of May. I had to take my photo of my apple tree at the end of May too as the petals had fallen off the tree by June 1st. :))
The middle of May shots are lovely. Every time I see your photos for “first of the month” I think I should join and then I forget. Maybe I should take photos from my kitchen windows; there are lots of flowers and bushes and the view differs from one month to the next.
And I’m thinking of changing subjects – maybe a piece of my kitchen. The rhododendron changes so slowly – most of the change was in May.
rhododendrons have such beautiful flowers, glad you caught them in May!
How beautiful the pictures are. I love their tones and contrasts, and the captures of spring beginnings.
I love rhododendron. This is a gorgeous one.
It’s always the most stunning blooms that fade the quickest. Certainly that was one very stunning bloom!
