Taurus

Posted by Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 22 May 2016 in Plant & Nature.

A quick look at the Rhododendrons in our backyard this Spring. The Taurus are the first to bloom at the end of March. The yellow dust on the leaves is pollen from the large Douglas Fir trees that the Rhodies live under.
