Pink Azalea and Rhododendron

One of the first signs of spring in my garden is a large Azalea which flowers in the middle of the Island Bed. It's so pretty - I can see it from the house. Very early flowering, too, with promises of the warmer days to come. The flowers last for some weeks.

Towards the end of spring two rather fat pale pink rhododendrons start to bloom. They're also in the middle of the Island Bed. Very pale when the flowers open fully, and such a lovely contrast with their healthy green leaves.

 Name unknown.
Pale Pink Rhododendron

So the Island Bed's spring starts and ends in pinkness. Such beautiful symmetry!
