beautifully framed by the snow.

I think that rhododendron has a bit of frostbite, but I'm surprised it has so much green in all that ice!

Yes, these are very young plants, and they were all covered with snow for many weeks over the winter, so I was surprised to see there was still life in them at all as the snow began to thaw.

Dawn Treader...you may have caught someof my posts about the Smoky Mountains...and the Rhododendrons.

they are unbelievable in the Spring...they are about 6 feet in height and are all over the upper elevations. When they bloom in the spring...for a few short days...they turn the mountains white like snow.

I know Rhododendrons can grow to be very impressive. These ones are very young, I know they were planted after I moved into the building where I now live, which was less than 2 years ago. I was worried that this winter might have been too much for them. But they seem to have survived.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.







My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
