ABC Wednesday: J is for japonica

I am going to start with some spring shots of Pieris japonica.
I like the papery look of these flowers which show up in March where I live in NC.
The rest of the shots were taken this Monday and the light part where the flowers were in spring will turn a bronze color soon.
The rest of the shots are of another type of bush in front of my house and this one is Cleyera japonica.
I have three of these bushes and so far just a single cluster of leaves have their fall colors.
Quite a few of the berries are bursting forth.

Papery look - I like it too. And berries bursting forth is quite a lovely image to imagine, and you captured it well.

The inside of the last flower is truly fascinating.
I also like the papery flowers.
I always enjoy your journal submissions.

Japonica is a word I picked up quite a few years and I kept using it wrongly to identify a certain plant. Now I've got it right -- if it stays in my head. Thanks, Carver.

Pretty flowers, they look very fragile and the last one with the seeds is very interesting. Good J pictures.

Carver, I loved every shot. We have some late-blooming, delicate little guys in our back yard here in Madison, and they delight me no end. Thanks for educating me on a new plant! Amy
