I love camellias! They’re one of my favourite flowers, and we’re lucky here in Baltimore to be just at the northern-most edge of where they’ll grow. In fact, a few miles north of where I live, in the more suburban sections of Baltimore, it’s just too cold during the winters for them.
All of this is in light of the lovely gift I received when I went to walk Connor first thing in the morning. An old school friend had left the most beautiful pink camellias on my front porch! She lives just a few blocks from me, and when I had admired her camellias on Facebook, she was kind enough to share some with me, along with some Japanese Andromeda, which is about two months late this year. The camellias are also very late this year… along with everything else. We’ve got forsythia blooming at the same time the trees are flowering. I found a celadon vase and thought the flowers would look perfect in it. I am such a lucky gal to have friends who send me flowers, and who deliver flowers from their gardens right to my door!
Thanks so much!
