The Promise by BrightStar2 The Promise by BrightStar2
I am not sure what these are, I thought another type of magnolia, but I could be wrong....
This is dedicated to :iconpenguinflavoureddoom: for her birthday, and one of her wonderful poems
for you to read, which I thought was beautifully written with lots of emotion.

Here's wishing you have a wonderful birthday. :iconhappybirthdayplz:

The Promise
by *penguinflavoureddoom

tears fall silently,
my mouth left open in a silent sob
a sob that will never come --
-- not while you can see

and yet, you know.
you know a storm is coming;
you know I'm going to fall;
you know that this may kill me.

promises fly fervently
from your lips.
and I know from your tone,
your touch, your face

you believe them.
you believe them wholeheartedly.

[I wish I could, too.]

The Promise tears fall silently,
    my mouth left open in a silent sob
    a sob that will never come --
-- not while you can see

and yet, you know.
    you know a storm is coming;
    you know I'm going to fall;
    you know that this may kill me.

promises fly fervently
     from your lips.
     and I know from your tone,
     your touch, your face

you believe them.
you believe them wholeheartedly.

[I wish I could, too.]

THey are one of many types of Azaleas or Rhododendrons,
which are very related. :D
There are many many many right here where I live in my town on the coast, and on my property, are so many colours and varieties alone!
:faint:

We even have our Azalea Festival for 4 days this weekend!

It's such big deal around here, because these varieties are so prolific.

They come in all kinds of sizes, shapes, colours, and multi-colours, but something about the way the inside looks, you can identify them.
:aww:

I always look at the name, and advice other to take a shot of the names
so not to forget what flower was being taken, and I did't do it....
How lovely, seeing lots of beautiful flowers in bloom is such a deligh. :iconflowerplz:

Are you going...Not much goes on here, but we do have the Chelsea flower show here
close by once a years, its on the BBC too..
its actually more for gardeners but some beautiful plants
and flowers to be seen and wonderful designs....love to watch it.
Thank you :D :hug:

BrightStar2 Featured By Owner May 16, 2012
Thank you, That is what caught my eye the colour,
and how well they are flowering, do rhododendron grow on big trees
like the Magnolia, these were next to them which had actually died already,
these were still in full blooms and about the same size as the magnolia tree
so thought it may be the same family....:sun::iconelvenfae:

yep, they can be on huge bushes/trees depending on the variety.
if i could see the leaves better i'd be better able to say for sure, but here is a link to a light pink variety of rhodie that may help you to see if it is similar to what you saw. :)

hope that helps some :) :)

It is only up the road so I will go back soon to comfirm.....
