This Rosebay Rhododendron lives at the Asheville Botanical Gardens in Asheville, North Carolina.

At this time of the year, the buds are swelling on most of the trees.  The birds are busy singing and building nests.  People are out walking in the sunshine, laying on the grass on blankets, and today there were even a couple of people dancing by the river and playing guitar. What a day!
