There have been a few plants around my garden that have started to bloom. A lot of my Australian natives are just starting to bud and some are already starting to flower. Many of my daffodil and hyacinth bulbs are starting to emerge from the soil with healthy foliage. But I always get excited when I see this Rhododendron bloom. The bright pink honeycomb shaped flowers always brighten up a day. When it is gloomy and cold it is always nice to see some bright colourful flowers in the garden.
