I know they seem like common landscaping plants in many areas, but I'm always amazed at the beauty and variety of Rhododendrons. They come in dozens of colors, sizes, and shapes, and there's a wonderful collection at the Berkeley Botanical Garden, in their East Asian garden area. Here are a couple of images of one particularly beautiful example.
I'm going to take another trip up to the garden soon, to get some shots of the early summer plants, so expect some new plant and flower pics in the near future!
