Ruby Tuesday-Red Rhododendron

We just got back from Ireland and the flowers over there were amazing. I had never seen Red Rhododendron before but saw them on this trip. Gorgeous.

OK, I know you are all busy checking out everyone's Ruby Tuesday but take the time to bookmark me and drop back to check out my blog. I am a retired Special Ed teacher who now spends most of her time on Sanibel Island, Florida which is a Sanctuary Island for wildlife. I volunteer for a wildlife hospital. I am also the proud grandma of 5 wonderful grandkids and brag about them often!! I also have a blog called Branches and Roots where I talk about genealogy and my ancestors. OK, enough about me. So if you really want to see red go to Work of the Poet

These are quite intense aren't they... you are right, the red variety are not as common as the hot pink and white.

How wonderful to work with the wildlife... great opportunity to capture beautiful pictures too!

They are great!! We saw some in Washington State while we were up there, too.
