Camellias in my garden.

Written for: This Moment, 6WS, SIMC and Day 9 June photo a day


First Winter flower appears - I'm thrilled

A couple of days ago, a single Camellia appeared in my garden. 

It's always a great thrill to see the Winter flowers start to bloom and they liven up some dreary Winter days.

Here is my first Camellia this season. It's such a pretty colour too.

It rained this morning so the raindrops are still clinging to the flower.


This is the moment 
This is the time 
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme
Give me this moment 
This momentous moment ..
(from Jekyll and Hyde)


All my plants have lots of buds on them so soon they will be covered with flowers - can't wait for those moments.

A simple, special, extraordinary moment 
A moment I want to pause, savour and remember

  6. Hello Suzy,

    A gardening SWS is always a joy for who loves Camelia as I do. Well that's funny, because precisely last week, I was commenting a post about june being roses month, and I confessed that since Dumas novel, I was totally crazy about camellias. Thanks for this gift.

    All the best

  8. I love camellias ... they are plentiful in my home area of south Louisiana but it's too hot here in Texas for them to do well. I enjoy them when I go "home"! Thank you for sharing.
