Tag Archives: Azalea mucronulatum

After yesterday’s INSANE winds (that snapped one of our patio umbrella poles in half and the umbrella wasn’t even open!), it was so nice to have a calm, sunny, blue sky day today. 

"Pink Sno-ball" (Azalea mucronulatum 'Cornell Pink', Pink Manchurian Azalea) Nikon D300, 105mm, F/7.1, 1/400s, -0.3EV, ISO 400

I was chasing the bumble bees (with my lens, thank you) that were madly scouring the Cornell Pink azalea but with only bee butts to show for my efforts, I turned my focus to the luscious pink blooms instead. 😉 

Upon seeing this shot on-screen, my first thought was of a favorite childhood treat – the Hostess Sno-ball! A creme-filled chocolate cake covered in marshmallow and smothered in pink-tinted coconut – yum!
