Camellias in full bloom

They steal the whole show

  1. You have flowers blooming in winter?? We get white petals that float gently to the ground and pile up to huge snowbanks that must be shoveled and dug through and…. well, you get the picture.

      Yes, we do have flowers blooming in winter. And, yes, I get the picture, too. I remember when I was there one of the school buildings was upon a hill, and the hill was like all made of ice during the winter. I was very young then and I had such fun with other kids of climbing up the hill on all fours every morning. It’s all sweet memory now.

  2. My azalea is doing its best, but I agree, you cannot beat a camellia.

    • AshiAkira says:

      Azaleas are summer flowers here. But, of course, there is always one or two in every group that just don’t get along with others, and they bloom when the leaves are get frosted. But, strangely, I can’t help having the feeling of closeness to such the ones. 🙂

  3. There’s a showoff in every group– but you, sir, show us that that can be a very delightful thing. Conjures up a lovely vision, which is, of course, your specialty. : )

      Thank you for the nice comment. I always try to put into words what I see in the mind, and I realize the mind is not free from the reality I see outside the mind. 🙂
