    Spring is here! This is the flower on our Pink Pearl Rhododendron. The filaments tops look to be made of gold!
    "The Pink Pearl Rhododendron won the Award of Merit in 1897, a First Class Certificate from the Royal Horticultural Society of England for a cut flower truss exhibited with foliage in 1900, and the Royal Horticultural Society gave it an Award of Garden Merit in 1952. It is one of the least demanding and most beautiful of popular rhododendrons."

      Thank you Inky from New Zealand. I photograhed them this morning in the Pacific Northwest.
      Since the fillaments appear to be Gold, I suppose these Rhoddies belong in the CW jewelry section. Or, the CW kitchen section after being cut for the table center piece.

      Looking at this beautiful post again, your pink rhododendron photos are awesome. I love the 4th photo which reminds me of a hibiscus (my fave flower since falling in love with them visiting Hawaii yrs ago)

      Thank you Newfld for your compliments. I took the pics with my phone... a Real Camera would've produced better results! Photograhy is a great hobby. Hibiscus are amazing flowers & offer a large variety of colors!
