Rhododendron periclymenoides buds....hey they're nice too

This is the trail along the Fern Valley stream; I've just passed the pond on my right. If I continued walking over the hill, I would reach, in a short distance, the fallen Beech Trees basically between the trail and the stream. The quantity of bloom is ridiculous this spring, and this is a good plant ot see that on. Pinxterbloom in average deciduous shade flowers dependably but sparsley; the flowers are attractive and fragrant but you'd never say that it "put on a show".....except for this year.
