The biggest rhododendron in the world

Between the showers, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

..... is apparently to be found in Nagaland.

I do not have aphoto of it, having never been there, but as they are flowering so beautifully in the parks and gardens of Amsterdam, I managed to capture this one, between the showers this lunchtime.

Rhododendrons always remind me of Bournemouth, as throughout June, every year the flower profusely along the smart roads of the town, above the cliffs along the way to Sandbanks, a favourite haunt of we students at Southampton University, after the exams at the beginning of the month.
