Rhododendron blooming

photos by Kristen > people, animals & things > Flowers and plants

This is the large rhododendron tree. The smaller one has lost its blooms and is just a plant now. On this plant six blooms opened in the space of seven hours. They were all closed as of noon, and six of them were open seven hours later! I wish I had a way to time-lapse this without getting my camera wet.
