Random Garden Photos 2

I think that I should make this a regular feature over the course of the winter.  Hopefully other people will enjoy them, and I will get to look at some digital plants (and animals) that will partly make up for the lack of non-dormant plants outside now!

Honeybee on azalea flowers.

Pieris or Japanese Andromeda with new growth in the spring.
This variety has new growth that is red, which only gradually fades
to green by early summer.  To the left, a large hydrangea is just
starting to "leaf out".

Columbine hybrid with multiple layers of petals.

A perfect spring day in mid-May.  Scenes like this look especially beautiful
after month after month of drab, dormant ground in winter and early spring.
