The very first Wild Azaleas and Wild Rhododendrons have bloomed

Rick and I saw the first Wild Rhododendron flowers blooming along Highway One in Salt Point State Park on Wednesday. The beautiful pink blossoms are always a treat to see. And the first Wild Azaleas have bloomed. Robert Scarola photographed a early bloomer.

Just the two blossoms are open but aren't they lovely? So much more loveliness is to come as these beauties will continue to bloom in the weeks ahead. Thanks to Robert for allowing me to share his photo with you here.

And to think that people want these cut down and removed. What a joyous sight!

Cut them down? Sacrilege! They are a joyous sight, Steve. I just learned the first rhodies are blooming along Kruse Rhododendron Road. Yea!
