Raindrops on Roses, Azalea, Camellia, Butterfly Bush and a mystery flower

Happy floral Friday, dear reader! Earlier this week my husband and I enjoyed a rainy walk in the U.S. National Arboretum's Asian Garden. There's something especially beautiful about flowers with raindrops on them.

It's always a pleasant surprise to see azaleas blooming in the fall. On a break between rainshowers there were even some bees enjoying the flowers.

I have no idea what kind of plant/flower is pictured above (if you do, please share!) but it was neat looking.

This camellia almost looks like a peony so it brings thoughts of spring to mind, even on a chilly autumn day.

My husband took this beautiful and unusually colored butterfly bush flower cluster photo. We didn't see any butterflies but usually these bushes attract plenty of them.

That's all for today's floral photo tour. Hope you enjoyed it. Which was your favorite photo? I wish you a happy weekend and pray that God will bless you!
