Azalea's In Bloom

Azalea blossoms. (Click pictures for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"A beautiful blossom is a fleeting thing
It stays for a moment and then takes wing:
With special rays we catch it ere flight
So all may enjoy the beautiful sight."
~ Albert Richards
The azaleas are in full bloom along with pink and white dogwood, tulips, iris, redbud, and a host of small but intricate "weeds". The azalea are various shades of pink, salmon, red and white. The bumble bees flock to the white blossoms and bury themselves in the depths of the flower to emerge, heads covered in yellow pollen, heady with nectar. I love Spring.
