Camellias do very well in our climate and I have quite a few bushes in my garden. They are all very old having been here when we bought the house. Because of their age many are as tall as trees. Each year without any special care they faithfully sent forth beautiful blooms...a sample which you can see below.
I like them all but my favorite is this very large, loosely petaled one, the color is exquisite: a soft, creamy white with yellow stamens.
I have been picking them to bring in the house, this cute little three part vase is perfect for arranging them. Here they are adding beauty to a hanging shelf in the dining room.
White camellias always remind me of Coco Chanel. When I was in France with my granddaughter we visited her shop on Rue Cambon ~ every purchase is put in a bag decorated with a pretty white, artificial camellia. As you can see my bottle of Chanel Number Five is halfway gone...it is my favorite scent.
Don't you agree that these are absolutely Scrumptious!
Thank you for visiting, I hope you have a little floral delight to lighten up your day.
