Last week at the Parap pool I noticed one of the shrubs was flowering so I pinched this little bunch to bring home. I thought they were just gorgeous once you could see the detail.

Very pretty, I haven’t seen that before… the pods almost look waxy.
I think I’ve seen them on the trees from a distance, but not up close. I think they’re so pretty.
Those are beautiful. I love the open flowers contrast with the unopened buds. I noticed I have an azalea blooming in a hidden spot in my yard. The person who lived here first didn’t plant things so they could be seen, Or she let other things grow up and hide them. I think I will go photograph them today. Now.
I was delighted to see just how pretty they were in detail Kristin, and yes the contrast is important. Did you get your azalea photographed?
