Blooms at the Gorge!

The Cataract Gorge is well known for the lovely show of Rhodendron blooms in the spring time.
I think when they planted them many years ago they only had a few colours.


The Rotunda was once where a Band played and is now information centre.


A blaze of the one colour. Rhododendrons.


On the way down the steps you see this Rhododendron bush.


Part of the pathway down to the Gorge - there are several.

    1. They are lovely J0-Anne, and that pathway is steep in places, it's hard going for me and my lungs, also good for the leg muscles :)
