Rhododendron in October

We have had a spot of "Autumn Summer" lately, so one of our Rhododendrons (Cunningham's White) has got spring feelings. It usually blooms in May around here.

Flotte bilder, det skjer rare ting når temperaturen stiger...
"Indian summer" er vel det vi opplever nå...
Ha en fin kveld!

I like flowers a lot – primarily because they bring back the different kinds of bees that feed off them. This year was different. Way too much rain at the start and then blistering heat for a few days and then into what feels like winter. So I don't have anything comparable with your white flower.

I sometimes experiment with the new Tamron 18-270mm lens trying to see how much I can get out of it without being too noisy.

Er det virkelig mulig?? men en kan vel klø seg litt i hodet alle og enhver vel. 20 grader i oktober, og en kan gå litt i surr alle og enhver...

Sliter med mine jeg faktisk, rhododendron altså :-( bladverket har blitt så brunt så brunt og ikke skjønner jeg symptomene (?) du? Må vel henvises til sepesialist sikkert.

Flott kommende uke til deg Rune, Anneklem kommer over fjella her ---->

How neat! I just spotted some Iris in bloom yet this weekend. . . we are enjoying "Indian Summer" as they refer to it here.

Very beautiful, the center has little hearts.

Like a chrysalis, on the verge.

I hope it won't have to regret to be so early, or so late. A last gift from summer?..

Vårfornemmelser på vestlandet? Jeg fikk en vag følelse i forrige uke, men tåka i helga fikk meg tilbake til virkeligheten igjen. Det er og blir HØST! Nydelig bilder i alle fall ... ha en toppers ny uke!

Lovely capture of a slightly misguided bloom--but a nice metaphor for taking chances, yes?

Fine macro photos, we had a late "summer" here too - for almost two weeks with sun and temperatures above 20 drg. C. Lovely! But now I think it has come to an end - and we expect night-temp. below 0 dgr. C in the weekend.......

Så flott,håper temperaturen holder seg så den får springe helt ut.Noen og enhver kan vel få vårfornemmelser når det blir sånne temperaturer i oktober:))

Gorgeous, RuneE. The top shot has an almost abstract feel--dreamy, maybe. Sumptuous.

Høst,
