Torrential rainfall, accompanying winds, then more rain, and a little more rain ended our rhododendron show too soon.

on the ground One by one, blooms slid along their pistils and fell to a heap in the grass.sliding bloomsWaterlogged blossoms still dangling from branches were visited by dozens of bees today. Competition was lively and the buzzing was a steady drone for most of the day.

bees Petal drop was everywhere. Lilac  and viburnum blooms are also finished and petals are decorating the grass in different shades. I am sorry to see the show end but never sorry to see a good spring rain.
