MY BLOOMING CAMELIAS


I am so excited to see more new flowers in my garden. The Camelias are blooming all over the place. There are four large bushes with a gazillion buds just ready to burst. Doesn't seem like Fall does it?

We are having a nice fall, but the frost here would have done in your flowers.

Thanks for the visit and comment. You asked me "What's coffee soup?"

During World War II a lot of kids ate something for breakfast and one of the more important meals they could fix themselves was coffee soup.

Regular boiled coffee or perked coffee poured in a large cup. Into which you crumble-up a handfull of "soda crackers" (important to get this kind as all the others have salt and salt makes coffee super bitter). Most kids had poured in some real cream as milk used to always have cream on top (It was before milk was homogenized or pasturized). This then made a thick mixture of coffee, cream, sugar and soda crackers. I actually enjoyed it as did most kids but my mom almost always fixed my breakfast for me and it was usually eggs and bacon and toast. The toast was bread put on a fork and held over the cookstone flame until it was brown or burned black. Scrape off the burn with a knife and spread on real butter.

I have been working on my website. I put up segments on bumblebees, butterflies and moths yesterday. You might enjoy having a look at those when you have time. There are others there too. If you go it is at http://www.oldmanlincoln.com/ . I think you might be surprised.

Coloured leaves, flowers, insects and so on. You have colourful surroundings. It's a very nice season for photograph - well, may be any season in different way, but I like autumn. Thanks for showing those colours.

Lovely shot... I especially like the contrast between the soft petals and the texture of the wood (is that wood?) that is the background. Just lovely!
It's funny - I never used to look at things like that before.
You are so lucky to still have blooming flowers! Keep those shots coming our way!

Your blog is wonderful. You are a good photographer. There is "unity" in what you post. I like it.

Annie said...

I have a grandchild by the name of Camille. These flowers do her justice.

Aren't they beauties! I know you are glorying in them, just as I glory in my granddaughter.

Don't they look beautiful against the grey of the fence? Thanks for your kind comment on my blog {{HUGS}}

When I looked at the photo as big, they were like alive flowers, amazing. We try to grown Camelias in side in pots, but they are very demanding and very often buds fall before they are open.
Nice to see your Camelias even virtual like this.

The flowers are gone from this area, but my sod is rooting nicely :)

To answer your question, Sam is on staff with a YWAM base in WI. Tim is looking to do a masters commission with the AG church to become a youth pastor, and my oldest daughter Rose is looking to do a DTS with YWAM in 1 ½ years. Not sure about the other three yet.

Wendy said...

What a nice addition of color to the fall season. Your photos are so nice, makes me wonder why you go by Photo"wannabe" - you ARE a great photographer!

Ash said...

So very pretty!

joan said...

That so pretty. The fall colors are nice here in Cincy but I already miss the flowers.

Yes,with a photograph like that,Winter seems far away.Only if it were true.

Beautiful flowers,makes me yearn for summer all over again.

Kate said...

You framed these blossoms beautifully. It's a beautiful picture!

ASH's Eye said...

I thought these had to be from your archives - seems like spring is in full swing for you.

Oh well, I'm one to talk. It was in the 60s and 70s here only about two weeks ago, and today was the first day since April that it didn't get above 50!
