Pretty colors! They'd be perfect for Valentine's Day :-)
I thought about Valentine's Day when I picked them!
Very nice. Like a red rag to a bull, my grandmother was always telling us to not touch the petals of her camellia blooms as it made them brown, which of course made us touch them.
I've always heard the same thing said about gardenias!
I love those blood red Camellias, I really must plant one!
The reds ARE nice, aren't they?
I just love those camellias.Ms Soup
Me too! They brighten up the winter landscape.
Beautiful, I can almost smell them.
They don't have any smell, unfortunately. But in the winter, you take what you can get! :)
What wonderful colours! Really good to brighten even the dullest, darkest day.
I think so, too. I keep picking them and putting them in vases around the house. I love cut flowers!
They are very pretty, you are lucky to have them in your garden!Greetings Maria x
I'm lucky that the lady who lived here before us planted them!
Beautiful.I always try to grow them here ,but i fail.
They grow very well in this area. My first apartment was surrounded with beautiful old camellia bushes!
Gorgeous. I planted one when I first moved to Florida, but it died. I may have to try again.
I don't know if you read Mary Moon's blog (It's "Bless Our Hearts" on my sidebar) but she lives in Florida and has the most gorgeous camellias. Just lovely.
I do and I lust after her camellias! However, she lives in Northern Florida where the climate is more like Georgia's. I live in Central Florida, which is a little more unforgiving. Florida is an odd state in that it has 6 growing zones. Very confusing.
Glorious! We love camellias but never had much luck with them in our gardens.
They're nice to have in the winter when nothing else is blooming. :)
Camellias are very beautiful. Am I correct that they are South Carolina's state flower? (I've left a comment on your prior post.) xo
No, South Carolina's state flower is the Yellow Jessamine, Gelsemium sempervirens. It's a very early spring flower (it should be appearing soon) that grows EVERYWHERE. It smells nice and is a cheerful, bright yellow.
Those are beautiful.Love,Janie
Thank you, Janie.
It looks like a Summer photographx
It may as well be...we've hardly had a winter at all so far this year. Today was 72F (22C) and so warm I was dripping sweat in the turtleneck I wore to work (it was chilly early this morning when I got dressed).
