This rhodo already bloomed this Spring but decided to do it again with one flower. The bees appreciate it. Gave it a slight texture.

A special thank you to Darryl (Carper123) Sue(Sue118) and Machaela_Solway for their very much appreciated UA's.
Such a lovely surprise.

Processing works really well and clearly, that little Hoverfly is delighted by the second flowering. One of my dwarf Rhodos has done likewise. These flowers are always such a magnet for Bees and the like.
