As I was taking some shots of all the flowers blooming this week, I came upon this shrub that was literally buzzing with activity (pun intended). Bees were everywhere but catching them in the lens was a challenge.
We are not sure what this flowering shrub is. It looks like an azalea but blooms a couple of months earlier than all the other azaleas. It has been here for probably 30 years or more and pre-dates me in the house. I guess you don't have to know what it is to enjoy its early March lavendar blooms each year.
So take some time to smell the roses (or azaleas) and take some close-up shots while you are out there. And then share, please.
Happy close-ups to you,
