We are coming up on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot (starts next Tuesday night), and it is customary to bring flowers into one’s home. My azaleas are in bloom this week; who knows how they will appear next Tuesday when I am looking for blossoms to choose? My tulips have come and gone already.

What a lovely photo…azalea buds are beautiful!
Thank you for the link.
Thank you, Lorri! I was trying to focus on the open flower, but the camera focused on the one behind – worked well, and no one knows that I was trying for a different focus. Well, I just said so, however.
I love your azalea picture. What camera do you use and what setting? BTW: Thanks so much for the shout-out. 🙂
You’re welcome, Susan! I love your spring-y podcasts. I have a Canon Rebel xTi, and I used my Canon telephoto lens. It seems to work best when I use Auto – I work at getting the focus on an object, and whatever is behind gets the lovely bokeh.
Beautiful…love your reviews..
What a lovely photo! Thank you for linking to my post.
Azaleas are one of my favorite discoveries since moving down South.
Hello leora, your red azaleas are beautiful. And your collage of blossoms and colors is lovely. What a great idea to do this review post. Have a happy day!
