The burst of fuchsia colored flowers, brightens the yard Having grown over the years, it spreads further now Big blooms that attract the Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly They stand out like fireworks on a dark, cloudy day Stop, look, see them while they last... It's a show to enlighten even the darkest of days Then stunning with shine, when the sunlight returns Heidi Sands *This will be edited later, when I can figure out how to get the photo here clearly. It is not coming out right. Thanks. 6/8/21

I have never had rhododendron but I have seen some on mountain trails and they are beautiful. I enjoyed reading your work. I hope you get the picture to come through. Sara

Thank you Sara. I think it is unable to be uploaded clearly from my tablet and will need to be done on a computer. It has grown larger over time and this year is bursting with blossoms. Most in the area are light lavender, not the color of this one. I appreciate your kind comment . I hope you have a nice day :)

I love Rhododendron in bloom. It is fascinating! Rhododendron, ( Rhodon = Pomgranade and Dendron =tree) a Greek word designating the flowers that resemble those of a pomegranate tree. Beautiful writing. I have sent you instructions on how to post the photo, dearest Heidi. Hugs xxx

Interesting info. Demetrios. I didn't know that. There are many light lavender colored ones in this area, but mine are bright Fuchsia. I just replied to your second instructions. I am still having issues and wondering if it may be my tablet. I am not sure. I appreciate of your assistance. Thank you for your kind comment too :) Hugs xxx

As beautiful a poem as the flowers it describes, Heidi. No, I don't see the photo, but your description is like seeing a photo.

Hi Heidi, I copied and pasted the link, the picture isn't there. Below Upload images ( next to source) is a box with a sun/moon and two little mountains, click that and copy and paste the link and submit it. I hope this helps. Your picture is beautiful by the way:-)

Hi Kim. Could you see the photo?? I can't see it with the link I did as the directions say. And if I copy it to the poem, it's blurry. Thank you :)
