I seem to have taken on a flowers of the northwest theme so here's another, the common Rhododendron. Plus bee. I say they are common as they grow easily here, they like it damp and shady. They are quite showy for a short period, and as you can see the yet-to-open flower can be much deeper coloured than the open flower.
