Photo by Lee Lageschulte

As you may have surmised, I don't know what these flowers are. The same day that Lee sent the photo, I saw this plant in another location. I still can't figure out whether it is pink flowers turning yellow, or yellow flowers turning pink.

It's an eye-catcher, though.

Not flowers at all, but new leaves. The plant is Pieris japonica, and the cultivar is probably 'Flamingo'. The leaves will eventually turn green. The actual flowers, which are usually a creamy white (but in some cultivars may be shades of pink) are urn-shaped and hang in drooping clusters.

I think it's Andromeda - also known as Pieris - will be covered with little pink or white berries -
