Friday Flowers - in excess

via here
Camellia
by Southern artist Nall


We have a wealth of camellia blooms this year.
An excess of blooms I used to fill every corner of the house.

view from the kitchen into the courtyard...framing a fast fading white camellia








In excess...or even just a single bloom brighten the short winter days. 

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND

Oh, Jennifer! Those are the prettiest things I've seen today. How gorgeous. You can never have too much excess when it comes to camellias, I think. Yours are just gorgeous. Our season is a bit behind yours, but by next month ours should be in full bloom. I crossing my fingers that I will be home to see them. Thanks for sharing these beauties! Happy Weekend! XO

Simply stunning..... my favorite is the kitchen windowsill..... Not seeing any of those here in Geneva. Instead, I JUST found paperwhite (although they are yellow) bulbs available this week. Surprisingly too, the violas around town that were planted in October are still thriving in the snow and freezing temps! On a sad note; I let me kumquat tree die somehow.... it didn't like being indoors. Have a great weekend!

Crissy: yellow paperwhites, I must see! That sounds beautiful...and blooms in the snow, how nice.

Mourning your kumquat tree...good excuse to bring some other beautiful tree home
