Rainy Day Blooms

Rainy Friday yielded Spring blossoms blooming in the rain or falling down to be captured by photos.  The rain has washed the pollen from the surfaces so that the colors can be seen.  Just before the rain EVERYTHING was green with pollen. Or brown with the fallen oak flowers.  The fuzzy brown caterpillar-looking things in the picture with trumpet flowers are oak tree flowers which bloom brown.

In some of the higher hammocks the wild azaleas, actually a rhododendron, are blooming.   Wild azaleas are more delicate than their showier domestic cousins, with an ethereal soft pink color.
