This morning when I was leaving for work I looked around our courtyard and saw my camellia ablaze with red color!! Everyone one of the blossoms were blooming away! I love this beautiful, graceful shrub. I remember living up North and travelling to Charleston around this time of year and going to the plantations and just being in awe of all the camellias! Middleton Plantation and Magnolia Plantation had such beautiful gardens with camellias. Now up North it is just too cold to grow these lovely flowers so living here in the South I just had to have atleast one of these lovelies! The one I have is a double red and I posted a picture of one of the blossoms the other day. Camellias just always remind me of the lovely Springs here in the South! Here are some pictures of these gorgeous flowers I found on line:
Shell pink camellias are so delicate and add so much charm and gracefulness to a garden. I have impatiens in my garden every year and I try to pick some in this color. I will also have to add one camellia in this color too!
This white camellia looks like a gardenia! Just gorgeous!
This peachy pink color is one of my favorites! Just stunning!
I am going to have to buy a camellia in this color! Who wouldn't want this burst of color in their yard!!
You don't see too many yellow camellias but this one is gorgeous!
This camellia is so different with the red color streaking through it. It would give any garden a little diversity.
I have a blouse that is the color of this camellia. I really need to look for that and wear it soon-LOL!
I hope you enjoyed the "camellia" tour! I just love this time of year!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
