A Sweet November Bloomer

IMG_5354

 

Aaaah yes, its that time of the year when the tropical rhododendrons or vireyas are in bloom in Hawaii. Actually they bloom year round, but the heavy flushes are coming out during the winter season. Its quite a show.

One of my early bloomers just started to come out in the front yard and it reminds me of why I just love these beauties, isn’t it sweet to greet me this morning?  This one has a faint morning scent, like vanilla and rose combined, just the right thing to whiff on the way out the door.

Lindíssimo exemplar de Rhododendron, sua cor é bem alegre e expressiva, fico a imaginar como deve ser maravilhoso ver e sentir o perfume destas flores.
Uma semana florida e cheia de paz!

Absolutely stunning! I can almost smell them! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Our late bloomers aren't quite as showy as yours! But, this time of year, any flower will do, esp. out in the wild! I look forward to taking advantage of some quiet time to peruse your archived posts and learning more about about Hawaiian botany. ~karen

Aloha Noel,
Thanks for commenting on my entry. I envy your tropical weather. I haven't been to Hawaii, to be honest.
Great macro shots!
Have a wonderful day.
