March 5, 2018

Location: Fellsmere, my yard

These are known as Azaleas
They have both male and female antennae
The long pink antenna is the female Stigma,
The male Anthers are shorter and there are many.

The Anthers produce the pollen,
Which is transferred to the Stigma by a bug or a bird
This helps to make the plant make flowers,
That beautify the world.
