Your Azaleas are already in bloom, they are very beautiful.
I like how the light and shadow alternates in the second shot.
Happy Easter!

Lovely images. I especially like the portrait orientation with the first one.

I planted a white azalea last autumn, but it's nowhere near ready to bloom yet. Of course, it is an outdoor one, and in a container because our soil is not right for them here.

If it looks anything like as beautiful as yours, I'm really looking forward to seeing it!

beautiful detail Carolyn especially when I clicked to make the photo larger - right down to the little pollen grains on the inside of the petals.

White flowers entrance me and you've caught these with the shadows and light play so nicely. I love the composition in the top one. I feel like I could walk right into that photo. Happy MM.
