It’s Camellia time again!

This is one of the few plants we inherited (and didn’t pull out) when we moved here and it never fails to please. I think, but am not absolutely certain, that it is
camellia japonica “Berenice Boddy.”


I had fun doing a Camellia photo shoot the other day!

We were cleaning/organizing closets last weekend and I found this picture in a box from my Mother’s house. That’s me, on the right, and my sister, in Maine where we went every summer. I can almost feel that huge rock and the sunshine and hear the lake water around us.


You can read more about our Camellias HERE and HERE.

Finally, let me tell you what a time it has been around here. By the time this goes out to all email followers, I will have switched servers!!! Yay! A shout out to Kelly for all her help; and yes, to me to for hanging in there. At last, it’s all finished!
