Rhododendron explosion

Prepare yourself for this colour therapy post: because something strange has happened here in Helsinki, Finland!

The spring was so cold and came late and it seems like the whole nature is now rushing to start the growing and blooming season. And so has happened in Helsinki’s Rhododendron Garden where rhododendrons and azaleas are NOW blooming at the same time! That is so rare! Normally the azaleas bloom earlier and then in the first weeks of June starts rhododendrons.

As a birthday present for myself we made a biking trip to this amazing park to see these beauties. We were so amazed by how colourful and vast the whole place was. It was like a magical jungle of flowers! And the fragrance of those flowers was so unique! If you want to see this go there now (Laajasuontie in Etelä-Haaga; Huopalahti station if you go by train)! I think the plants will bloom just a few days more.
