"we can't survive without enchantment."

This camellia was about the only blooming thing when I was at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens in November. I was surprised to see it even! Was actually leaving, and saw the pink color out of the corner of my eye. I stopped my car, got out again, and snapped off a few shots. Luckily I had some blue sky to provide the great color.


  1. If you ever come for a visit to So. Cal anytime, I must take you to Descanso Gardens! You turned this camellia into a magical piece of artwork.

  2. I came back to tell you that, thanks to you, I put a cute pitcher of camellia's on my table yesterday. For some silly reason I had never thought of using them for cut flowers until I saw this! Thanks for the inspiration Sylvia.
