These beautiful shrubs are much more widespread through the pacific north west United States but here in British Columbia they only bloom in a couple of very limited areas. So it makes a great early summer camping trip to Manning Provincial Park well worth while. This year it was quite damp when we arrived.

Is it Spring already? Wow that went fast!

Rob ole buddy, you seem to be having a difficult time accepting the change of seasons this year, we are gonna have to help pull you through

Lovely Rhodo's. I often see those paper pinks with dampness on them then dry so these fit right in for acceptance for me

You're right Karl, I just can't seem to let go of the warm months go, but then I did set aside a bunch of files to work on when the weather turned cold. Thanks for the comment, wandering around in a forest filled with these beauties would be right up you alley.

Lovely photos, Rob! The first is a particularly pleasing composition with the leading lines of the leaves in the foreground.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.
Ron - Are the rhodos you guys have the same as these or are they more lower growing bushes? These grow out in the forest and can be over 20 feet high.
