Blooms & Bumble Bees

We have so many Azaleas blooming!  I've never had Azaleas in my yard until now and I'm so enjoying their beauty!   The Bumble Bees seem to be enjoying them as well.

they are gorgeous and it is good you captured the beauty because they don't bloom all that long but when they do WOW and I LOVE that number 4 shot of the bee in flight. excellent photos. i smiled because i have the azaleas from the rehab home on my desk top, same color pink as these.

So glad you have Azaleas, Marie. I love them too.. Your RED is fabulous... We have several azaleas also --but some of our got damaged by our winter storms this year... I may have to cut them back. We do have a couple of gorgeous pink ones --which bloom late in spring....

LOVE your pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

We're still aways off from having flowers as gorgeous as those. I had lovely azaleas in my yard out in Washington. I miss them.

Your azaleas are so pretty. My dad had several large plants around his house and they were gorgeous. I've tried to plant them several times and they've never lasted more than 2 seasons.

Your shots are amazingly glorious!!! We see both the beauty of the bee and the azaleas. I love the Ruskin quote! And you DO have the eyes!

Beautiful pictures. Nature is beautiful isn't it? I love this time of year when all the beauty comes back again.
Hope you're fine and wishing you a lovely Sunday!

Your azaleas are indeed beautiful Marie. Ours aren't blooming yet but I'm looking forward to a bit of color out front.
