Rhododendron canadense -
native to Nova Scotia.
It is better known by its common name, Rhodora.
They are especially unusual in that they bloom before the leaves come out.
Right now, these large, purple-rose flowers are everywhere, making our hikes even more enjoyable!
A regular visitor to our yard!
