Tuesday/ rain, for the rhododendrons

It finally rained a little here in Seattle today – not much, but it was welcome.
It is May, and so the rhododendrons are out in full bloom: in whites and pinks and even yellows, oranges and reds.

Rhododendrons (from Ancient Greek ῥόδον rhódon ‘rose’ and δένδρον déndron ‘tree’) is a genus of 1,024 species of woody plants and found mainly in Asia. It is found widespread in the highlands of the Appalachian Mountains of North America. We also have plenty of them here in the city of Seattle – probably because it is the state flower of Washington State! [Some of the information obtained from Wikipedia].
