Camellias, Camellias Everywhere

Last week my double red camellia started blooming in our yard! I love these flowers. When we lived up North we couldn't grow camellias because it was way too cold for them. Alot of our neighbors have really beautiful shell pink camellias. I would love to get some more camellias and put them in pots for when we move into a house of our own but I am going to wait until then. It won't be for some time yet but I will just enjoy the one I've got now and my neighbors!

Here are my camellias:

These certainly are beautiful. The leaves look so healthy as well.

Mine are especially huge this Winter too - love them. My neighbor has a pale pink one - so pretty - mine are all red like yours.

Winter does have flashes of color that surprise us - and give us hope for Spring. Not looking forward to all that gardening ahead though - and still awaiting a nice heavy snowfall to help the soil and refresh the roots!

Meanwhile - enjoying a mild and sunny morning again.

Hugs - Mary

These are beautiful! I have white ones which tend to get brown around the edges. But I try to get then when they are still snow white and bring then in. They make great floaters.

Lol - we're shoveling snow and you're growing flowers. They're beautiful!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
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!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
