Photo Challenge – Gone but not forgotten. Mystery Pink

Spring and summer we barely knew ye! I know it’s that other seasons turn but….you know you two are my faves 😉  Here we have another I haven’t a clue as to what this plant is photo.  It was a huge bush with all of these clumps of pink flowers.  A funny thing I’ve noticed is that the stamens on the flowers have this “come hither” curl at the end; like our fingers when we gesture.   Do you think it’s natures way of luring in animals and insects for pollination?

  1. This is the fourth image in pink from folks I follow – maybe we are using the colors to brighten up our winter skies.

  2. I’ve no idea, but it is lovely.

  3. I love that saying “come hither”.. my mom always uses that one:) I think it is.. what pretty petals, if I were a bumblebee..

    The sun is finally shining here and this flower definitely makes me look forward to spring.

    It’s a Rhododendron… I have many large bushes of these at my Lake House in Pennsylvania. My sister planted them about 40 years ago. They are huge and immense with large blossoms such as these. What a great take on Gone but Not Forgotten! (by the way… can’t say I never taught you anything!) 😉 😀 😀

  6. Beautiful pink! Oh I wish I could see one of these nowadays in the park… 😦

  7. This is such a beautiful shade of pink. Wonderful photo

    They are beautiful, Teri, and are the same color as the azalea in my front garden. WHen they bloom, it means that Spring is in full swing — it cannot ever be too soon.
