These variously purple Rhododendrons grow to be large shrubs and in a few places they make a great 'mound' of colour.
Close by, there are some fantastically vibrant Azaleas, flowering in the shrubbery borders.
The mixture of bright yellow and orange blooms together, make a startling combination when the sun shines on them.
And the scent which reaches the nostrils while taking pictures, is sweet and heady.
Looking back again at the purple Rhododendrons, what a fantastic splash of colour!
There! That's brightened the day up a bit!
