Full Bloom

One of the most beautiful things about the southern Appalachians are the blossoming heath shrubs in late Spring and into Summer. It all begins with the various wild azaleas which lead to the opening of the Mountain laurel, and then the glorious display of the rhododendron.

I managed to miss both the azaleas and the mountain laurel blooms this year, but we arrived in the Highlands area to find the rhododendron at peak. Thus, following here are just some photos of the flowers without further comment.
