blooming off season?

I found a surprise in one of my flower beds on Friday night.


My rhododendron is blooming! Look at that blossom.


Then I noticed my two other rhododendrons have buds . . . right in time for me to leave on vacation for a week and miss most of the bloom!


Aren't rhododendrons supposed to be spring bloomers?

I've heard of a type of azalea that blooms in the fall, maybe it's similar? Or maybe it's confused with all the cool weather and rain we've been getting...
