The Exbury

Well, what have we here? Something peeking out from the edge of my photo.

This is the Exbury Azalea,  this color is called Gibraltar. Exburys are not well known, and not very popular.  In fact, I had never seen any in my whole life until last week! I saw two in one week. Maybe people are finally catching on.

It's really pretty. Those colors are really eye-catching. What really grabbed me was the flower on the pole. Is that a metal piece? It's really quite striking.

I really like this azalea. The colors are gorgeous.

It really is beautiful and I am wondering if it's a man-made like a hybrid that somebody created that color by mixing colors together. I've never seen one that color or that looks like that or even heard the name so I'm thinking it's something new. I also like that pinwheel thingy that's in the first photo
