The Camelia

Having failed abysmally to put these two pictures up in the Common Room of Purple Coo, I am putting them here.
I went to visit a lovely old lady of 94, whose grape vine I have been looking after. She has a large Camilia which she brought to Northumberland about 20 years ago. It was then in a fairly small pot and she planted it in a hole in the ground in her Conservatory. As you can see, it is now a good sized shrub. The macro picture of the 2 flowers give an excellent idea of the colour. She had rung me to say it was just about at its best and that I should go and look at it - hence the visit.

Beautiful flowers, Withy. Same is true of all those pictured below on March 1.

How I yearn for a garden when I see photos like yours. xo

Stunning - it must love its position.

We have just planted some pot bound camellias in the garden - I hope they do as well.

Camellias are just so blowsy aren't they Withy? I love that manic show of flowers that seems to come whatever the weather xx

Gosh, that's beautiful. Your 94 year old friend must be very proud.

Beautiful picture of Camelias Withy. Ours are out in the garden bright pink and compared to these rather blousey! But with nothing else flowering out there, their jolly brightness is heart warming.

Thanks for popping to see my little purple coo - just a bit of fun. Your camelias are beautiful. Flowers lift your spirits in a way nothing else can.
