Flower Photo: Azalea and Rhododendron Garden at EJC Arboretum

Red Azalea Photo

The rain gods took a brief intermission during my Virginia vacation to allow me to visit the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum at James Madison University. I didn't get to explore the full 125 acres because of muddy trails, but I did spend lots of time chasing bees around the azalea and rhododendron gardens. The above bumble bee stayed still the longest while enjoying a red azalea. The bee that was buzzing around the pink rhododendron below was too blurry in my other shots and missed his chance at fame.

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.
