I do miss the camilla bloom and the romantic blossoms floating on water in bowls set about our home.

Wish I could make a day trip to Huntington Library and stroll beneath the towering camilla trees, on ground covered with rosy colored petals of spent blooms.

Such beautiful camellias! And I was so glad to read that your trip went well, snow and all. Welcome back :)

(Also, I didn't know you could grow indigo here in California! I only have six cotton seeds, but I promise you some of your own from my first harvest :) )

Am I missing something? Ellen B. wrote about your blog...but I expected something different.
I just finished another scarf....Now I'm making a toque to match.
Beautiful shots of those flowers. Are they for real?

When I was young, I didn't appreciate the Camellias. But now I pick them, and, I almost think they look better in the house than on the bush!
