A couple of days ago, we stopped very briefly to look at some beautiful Pacific Rhododendron (Rhododendron macrophyllum) flowers at the Kruse Rhododendron State Natural Reserve.

It made me laugh because I imagined there was a little party going on, with everyone gathered at the center of the flower (not such a bad place for a party!). Check it out:
