exbury azalea photo,
macro garden photography,
Really like the shades of yellow and green and the stamen reaching out. Great shot.
What a gorgeous flower POD - I've never seen an azalea like that! And that quote is right on the money!!
joey - I think this late night stuff is getting to me - did I call you POD in my comment ?? mea culpa! Was looking at another website (too many windows open).Anyway, the comment on the azalea was meant for you :)
Beautiful, Joey. :) Love that quote. (I've been trying to give Picks this morning, but it seems they aren't cooperating.)
Thanks, Scott. Exbury azaleas are one of my favorite spring flowers.Thanks Rick. I'm a night owl too :)Thank you, dear Nancy. A bit baffling, I have yet to have time to figure out the new picks system. I saw your FB note to Monica ... wish you were here too! The weather couldn't be much worse, flood warnings, thunderstorms and heavy rain but that never stopped a good gardener :) Lunch will be steamy asparagus soup, roasted red pepper, pine nut & feta boboli (cheesy one too), Rosemary pound cake ... macadamia caramel clusters ... and May Wine! Can you make it in time!
Good morning Joey. I thought it was a squash bloom when I first looked at it. It's beautiful but seems very unusual for an azalea. Wish I could grow azalea here but they don't appreciate our alkaline soil.Marnie
I feel summer is on its way.
I love my exbury azaleas, Marnie. I shot this yesterday in between the rain. You think, imac! (April was friendlier than May) But I'm an optimist and my thoughts are with you :)
Usually the azaleas I see have pink or red blossoms. This is so pretty!
So pretty Joey. A neighbor at my last house had these in her foundation landscape - they really glow with a little sunlight on them. Hmmm. . . sunlight - I think I remember what it looks like. . . ;)
Thanks,dear Kala. Exbury azaleas (deciduous) bless us with an amazing array of color, making a huge statement in a quiet spring garden corner. If you don't have one, you must :)Hi Linda ... yes sunlight ... hope after these dark May days you were blessed today to see the light of day as we were. But regarding this beloved plant ... a must. Even one 'happy camper' makes a huge statement!
Exquisite Azalea! I so love the quote too.
Thank you, Carol. I get excited when these exburys are in bloom!
