"Budding genius"

Sorry for not posting on Friday, but I took a short break for my birthday.  I thought I'd have this one ready to post, but it just wasn't quite there.  I added a few details this morning to get it where it needed to be.  I'm very pleased with the contrasting colors.  The dark blue background sets off the bold pink bud nicely.  

Reference photo was taken on October 16.  You would not normally expect to see azaleas budding in the fall, but there it was.  I believe it was one of those year round azaleas.  It was located just above the wall right past Azalea Court.
