180518 rhododendrons (1)

Did you know that in the Victorian era, when flowers were used to convey not-so-hidden meanings, the rhododendron symbolised danger? I really can’t imagine why, except perhaps the danger of being stung by a bee if you put your face too close to the rhoddies’ extravagant blossoms. These beautiful blooms entranced me during a wander through Cardiff’s Bute Park on Monday.
