It is so lovely to see theseRhododendron ferrugineum in the wild. Always a wonderful surprise when one is high in the Alps.
beautiful images karl! and is it your birthday today? happy birthday!
Many thanks Tanya!damned social media ;-)
So many beautiful flowers...
These are all glorious photos but the 2nd one really stands out. What's this about a birthday? Just in case, I wish you a fantastical time on your birthday! Is there anything different about an alpine rose say, from a Roman rose? I'd guess an alpine nose would be a little redder than a Roman nose, but I'm not sure! :))
They are all lovely. It seems that your rhododendrons bloom quite a bit later than ours.
Sure Jack, I took these pictures 2 weeks ago at 2,150 meters a.s.l.
I didn't know Rhododendrons were called Alpine Roses. What a beautiful series!
I didn't know that either Karl, how nice from now on I'll look at my Rhododendrons and think of them as Alpine roses..nice :)
