I found this shrub with these great looking white & yellow flowers all over it in the Japanese Gardens here the other day. I have no idea what it's called but I knew they were soft & white. lol If anybody has a better suggestion for a name for this (or know the type of shrub) please let me know! Thanks so much everybody for stopping by & commenting!! Much appreciated! C):-)

Dan, you could call it Soft & White :)) When you're this pretty, names aren't important! It's beautiful and you've done a very nice job composing it. The darker background just makes this pop right off the page! And that focus .... ohhhhh! - Patty

They look exceptionally lovely and delicate Dan but I can't help you with the name. You've done a great job with composition and the lighting is perfect. What a great post and full screen it screams WOW. Thanks for a great post.

Never rebuke while you’re still indignant about a fault committed—wait until the next day, or even longer. Then calmly, and with a purer intention, make your reprimand. You’ll gain more by a friendly word than by a three-hour quarrel. -Josemaria Escriva

I think the real name of these flowers is "White ane Yellow Flowers" . Just kidding. Beautiful image though.

The name ChuPat is derived from my nickname Chuck and my wife of 34 years name Patti. Her photography will appear on Caedes as well from time to time. I consider myself an advanced amature not anyway close to being a professional. I have just taken photography more seriously since I have switched to digital. My profession has always been associated with pohtography in one way or another. Any criticism I receive will be well appreciated.

Dan! This is just GORGEOUS!!! I sooooooooooo love it! Beautifully composed and perfectly taken! Perfection achieved!! (Did I mention that I love it???) :)

Without seeing a pic of the entire shrub, just taking into consideration the flowers alone, this shrub looks very much like those in the Spirea family.

Japanese Spirea (Scientific name: spiraea japonica)
Bridal Wreath Spirea (Scientific name: spiraea x vanhouttei)!OpenDocument&Highlight=0,spirea

Lovely photo. Q
