HERE AND THERE A CAMILLIA


In spite of all the wind and rain that we have had, the little camillia bushes keep blooming.
Not the greatest shot but I thought some of you might like a splash of color to brighten your day

It is a pretty color. Do butterflies visit it or bees?

MedaM said...

Oh, Sue, as for me, this lovely photo really brightens my day. Look at that colour; look at that charming beauty...Thanks for this photo.:-)

Wow...this is BEAUTIFUL! I wonder if these guys can live inside?? I would love to have one and keep it inside during the winter....and have that beautiful color!
I have such a BROWN thumb...everything I try to grow usually dies.

It does make me hope Winter is over soon....we are 1/3 of the way thru January...and no measurable snow just yet....I can't wait until March!

So pretty. They don't grow this far south in Florida, but my aunt had some bushes at her house in the northern part of the state.

Oh it is nice to see a sunny pink flower on this cold and gray January day.

I hope you get some sunshine soon.

Your camillia is such a beautiful color! I have a rose about the same color, and look forward to it every year.
You fooled me with the eagle picture:)

Beautiful shot of color, thank you! Reminds me of the Camelia bushes I used to pass by on my way to the library, from the Capitol South Metro Station.
