Colour in the Rhododendron House

This Spring I have become a massive fan of rhododendron and in particular the ones that are found in the glasshouses at the National Botanic Gardens.

It is a few weeks since I last visited the gardens and got to enjoy the brilliant colour and fragrance that meandered through the air of the rhododendron house. The day I visited, it was particularly warm which meant the scent of the newly emerged flowers was extremely strong.

The flowers above are much more delicate compared to the outdoor ones I have encountered on my journeys over the past few weeks. Some of the best I have come across were in Powerscourt along its rhododendron walk.
