Camellias in Garden or Floating in Bowl

Camellias are blooming at our house, beginning the first week of January. The kind in these photos is mainly white petals with nice streaks of pink. These bushes are next to our patio and are about nine feet tall.

Beautiful! I miss all the flowers and veggies we were able to grow in California. Thanks for sharing your pictures. The smell of jasmine along the walks is one I miss the most. No such smells in the high dessert in New Mexico.

Beautiful. Not much growing around here! I did see some red berries on a holly tree though.

These are so delicate and pretty. I don't think I have ever seen a real one, maybe they don't grow around here.

Just beautiful! I need to learn what zone we live in, but it's a cold zone today!

I love camellias. I love the deep pink and the red varieties the best. I wanted to use some for a valentine table, but I don't know anyone who has them well enough to ask for a blossom share.

So pretty. I'd love to see something other than snow blooming here, in January (even though it's been a mild and dry winter and I'm just complaining for nothing). ;)
