This is just along the walkway to the front door. More on the flowers from the invaluable Wikipedia: Azaleas (pron.: //) are flowering shrubs comprising two of the eight subgenera of the genus Rhododendron, Tsutsuji(evergreen) and Pentanthera (deciduous). Azaleas bloom in spring in the Northern hemisphere and in winter in the Southern hemisphere, their flowers often lasting several weeks. Shade tolerant, they prefer living near or under trees.

One more bloom. This one is a favorite of the bumble bees, who were too shy to come out when I came out with the camera to buzz about.
