This Bud's For You ~ Speechless Sunday

Last year I posted a number of Rhododendron photos, they are so plentiful here in the mountains of Western North Carolina during late April and May. I love them, they are showy and vibrant … not to mention some of my favorite colors. This year though, I noticed them before they burst into full bloom and was taken by the richness of the bud’s color.

I also had a little fun with editing in Daguerrotype...

These are beautiful flowers, Mona, and I like your photo editing on the second one. What a beautiful color the flower is.

Mona-I love the depth of the color that the Daguerrotype gave it. Either way they are beautiful. Those look different than the one I have which is pink.

Mona,  That looks like it is going to be a beautiful flower once it blooms all the way.  Great picture.

Rene, glad you enjoyed it...they're all opened now.

Toni, I thought it was kind of cool too.

Sharon, the blooms are a light lavendar almost... much milder than the buds.

Roger, the problem is that he never circles the block to see what was said!

Jeanne and Ralph, this Bud's no calorie too.

Jerry, you are welcome and I hope the day was awesome.

Tammy, he's a cheater though...I've seen him at other posts too.

Belinda, don't you have rhodies in CO?
