Blooming in the cold

Filed under: Winter & Christmas — lessie @ 8:54 am

This Camilia bush must have been growing in my yard for years. Planted by the home builder, I imagine. I killed the other Camilia bush — so this one is that much more precious. Love that it flowers this time of year when so much else is brown.



  1. Oh it’s just beautiful. My grandma had alot of really pretty Camilia bushes. I remember she’d take the flowers that had fallen off and float them in a dish of water.

  2. I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting – yet constantly reworking – this comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

    Yes, I am but a mere mortal. The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, and those that have all seem a little worse for wear, if you catch my drift. All they seem to do is sit around smoking, playing cards and telling dirty jokes! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape. And you know, the wallabies just don’t cut it as replacements.

    Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

    I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your pumpkin pies are all as sweet as you like them.

  3. What a beautiful flower and what a beautiful photograph of the flower. Sometimes nature just takes my breath away. Well often, actually…this is superb.
