The Blooming Bloomers Have Bloomed!

BLOOMS!!!

This past week, I took photographs (below) the moment I noticed the appearance of new blooms. A couple of days after photographing the emerging blooms, the bloomers had bloomed into full, beautiful blossoms. They are fascinating to me because, up close, the patterns on their petals look like pink cheetah print. I love observing Spring in detail and documenting the process of blooming! It never gets old in my book… nature is miraculous! This is one of those bushes my father planted in my yard… I’m no flower expert so if anyone as any idea what type of flowers these are, feel free to comment!

  1. I love these pics! Wonderful capturing of the moods of blooming. I believe these are quite possibly rhododendrons.

  2. I think that’s an azalea…they look a lot like the flowers blooming in Bryan Park here in VA. Love the one with the dew drops 🙂

  3. After spending way too much time researching this just now, I’m not 100% sure whether they’re rhododendrons or azaleas (I usually think of rhododendrons as having bigger shinier leaves, but they’re the same genus); according to Wikipedia, if you just call ’em “rhododendrons” you’re probably right.

    These are all lovely! Like everyone else, I guess, I particularly enjoy the sharp focus of the nectar or dew on the ends of the… uh… stamens?, in “Pink Cheetah-Print Detail.” It’s a beautifully uncluttered composition.

Let me know what you are thinking :)
