  1. Hello Matti,
    Une belle collection, aux couleurs variées. Bravo pour la dernière photo, avec cet insecte saisi au vol.
    Je reproche aux rhododendrons de ne pas fleurir très longtemps, deux semaines tout au plus… vu leur beauté, c’est frustrant !!
    Bon week-end.

    • Merci Marion.

      Je suis d’accord avec toi quant à la dernière photo. J’ai fêté mes 50 ans annirersaire (il ya une éternité de ça) quand nous avons reçu notre premier Rhododendron. J’adore ces fleurs et beaucoup d’entre eux ce que nous avons ont été développés pour résister à notre dur hiver.

      Bonne fin de semaine.

  2. Good morning, Matti,
    it’s late but early in the morning, but I want to visit your page yet. Yesterday I saw no new images. From these beautiful flowers, I am thrilled. All flowers are a feast for the eyes. Particularly striking are the white flowers. The drawings on the inside of the flowers and the sunlight highlight the beauty of the colors out excellent. In Figure 7, I discovered a bumblebee, which pleased me very well. The details are clearly excellent. It acts very much alive. In Figure 15 I like that the flowers are slightly closed. In Figure 21 I liked the full pink bloom. In Figure 29 I discovered a little beetle. In the last image 35, I liked very well that the wing movements and the trunk of the bumblebee are very well expressed. I am very glad that you and Anja have the so-called green thumb, so that everything grows and you both will be rewarded with flowers. A garden is connected with a lot of work but it is a little paradise on that you may be happy and enjoy. I’m happy for you both. If I could I would give you more than 10 stars. Here, unfortunately, all rhododendrons are already faded. In between I took some pictures of different flowers in our area, neighboring villages and in the tropics houses in Cologne. Unfortunately I have no garden more. So I’m onlooker at other gardens and admire the beautiful plants and flowers and take photos there too. I am grateful that I was allowed to visit the site again and admire. Thanks for your nice comments on my pictures. I am very pleased. I hope you got my e-mail several days ago. We will enjoy our vacation. I wish you and Anja all the best and health to your daily routes. Dear greetings Christel

    • Hello Christel.

      Wow, that was a comment. I see that You have studied my photos with magnifying glass and finding many things. Thank You.

  3. Your flowers are very beautiful, and your garden must be too with all of them in it! They are wonderful blossoms and the colors are delightful too. So many different and delicate shades of color!

    • Hello Montucky.

      Thank You very much. I told to Marion (in French) that I received our first Rhododendrons when I celebrated my 50 years and from that it is now an eternity. Also that nearly all Rhododendrons here have been developed in Finland to resist hard winter. During winter those green leaves are quite poor looking, but when spring arrives, they wake up.

      Happy weekend.

  4. Wow! Each image is gorgeous and luscious in detail and colors! I like the one with the bee buried into the blossom. My, your garden of Rhododendrons must be a paradise! Beautiful!

    • Hello Anna.

      Thank You Anna. Paradise, no. Rhododendrons are in blossom quite short time, but anyway they are gorgeous. Our flower garden is very small and my wife has made plenty of experiences with different flowers. Some have died, some have moved to a new place etc.

      Have a happy Sunday.

  5. The markings on the rhododendrons make them look like orchids, they are very beautiful. I especially like the large white variety in 32 and the amazing colour of 23. Your last shot, showing the proboscis on the bee is fantastic – what a photo. Your garden is a special place all the year round.

  6. Thank you for coming to my blog! You are right: I should include Scandinavian countries. I would start with Finland and see the snow castle and some Finnish hockey. My only request is that Teemu Selänne be my tour guide.🙂

    P.S. I love your photos. You have a beautiful blog.

    • Hello Perroquet.

      Thank You. I guess that Teemu is busy next winter when playing in Anaheim Ducks. I guess that he would be great tour leader.

      Happy Sunday.

    • Hola Ramón.

      Que alegria al leer tu comentario. Tu tierra linda está llena de flores maravillosas, lo sé, porque lo he visto unas veces. Al mirar flores de Rhododentron, ellas pares como orquídeas.

      Saludos y gracias por tu visita.

  8. Those are some beautiful flowers. I imagine your wife really enjoys growing flowers as you do in photographing them.

      That’s just so, that’s touché.

      She really loves her garden very much. Sometimes I could say, but I am not saying: first garden, then me.🙂

    • Bonjour Tamara.

      How nice that You like our Rhododendrons of our small garden.

      Belle journèe á toi.

  10. They’re beautiful for sure!

    Comment by wordsfromanneli — February 8, 2013 @ 18:04 | Reply

    • Hello Anneli.

      I am happy when reading Your comment. We do love Rhododendrons. Fortunately, they will be successful in Finland and can withstand very cold winter. In very cold temperatures like (-34ºC / -29.2ºF) in their leaves droop. Many times I felt “pity” for towards them, but they woke again when spring came.

      Happy week-end!

  11. What a lovely variety of rhododendrons you have! All the different colors are so pretty. Especially against the white fence. I have white ones like yours but also a deep red one which was here when I bought the house and which I don’t see very often. Lovely!

    • Hi Letizia.

      Thank You. Our small garden of our previous house was the pride of my wife. Well, she took care of it and I just assisted. BTW, did You check our:

      Coffee corner,

      because there is interesting natural fence from cultivated willow.

      Have a lovely day!

  12. Hay de todas clases , veo! Me imagino lo orgullosa que estaba tu esposa!
    Me encanta este post..

    • Hola Anna.

      Gracias por su comentario encomiástico. Bueno, mi esposa amo flores y su padres tenían dos invernaderos para flores fuera de Helsinki, pero sin embargo ellos vendieron flores en el mercado de Helsinki días de semana. A veces Anja también vendió allí flores cuando era joven. Cuando Anja recibió su propio jardín en 1993, el sueño de Anja completa llena.

      Que tengas un buen día!
