  1. Sandra says:

    Just what I wanted to see this cold grey morning! Thank you.

  2. Tish Farrell says:

    Gosh, Janet. I could almost swear I can smell its lovely scent – you’ve captured it so wholeheartedly.

  3. Leya says:

    An eye-opener, Janet. Somewhere under all this snowy greyness there are …COLOURS and spring freshness!

  4. Pink with an attitude – beautiful. πŸ™‚

  5. Dan Antion says:

    Bright and pretty – good for a Friday when the world is wet and white.

  6. Allan G. Smorra says:

    Such a beautiful shade of pink, Janet. From the size and shape, it could be one of those dresses that Flamenco dancers wear (think of twirling).

  7. Whoa that’s an eye-popping bright pink! Great to rejuvenate me after our morning walk that wore me out πŸ™‚

  8. Cee Neuner says:

    Beautiful capture Janet. πŸ˜€

  9. Such a stunning colour!

  10. Tina Schell says:

    The textures in the petals and their flow reminds me of a beautiful piece of silk Janet – or should we say beautiful silk should resemble a rose?! Lovely capture.

  11. Su Leslie says:

    Beautiful! Those petals put me in mind of a flamenco dancer’s dress. Wishing you a great (and dare I say warm-weathered) weekend Janet.

  12. de Wets Wild says:

    Such a delicate beauty. Splendidly done, Janet!

  13. restlessjo says:

    Woo Hoo! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  14. Camellia? My Pink Camellia isn’t doing well. It hardly bloomed at all this winter, and what flowers it produced were small and sickly. I wonder if it was the years of drought or something a neighbor beyond the fence is adding to his/her yard causing this withering? Or could it be age of the plant? It’s pretty old and spent a good deal of its age just growing before it began producing beautiful big blooms, but this year and last were so dismal.

    For the first time since I planted it in the 80’s you can see through it. It’s not full or lush as it was and I fear everyday for it’s life. Are cultivated plants more vulnerable? Do they have a shorter life?
    I fear this next season will be the death of it. I am stealing myself to having to pull it out and start over with a new, young Camellia but I am mourning the loss of this one…my first one and fear I will for a long time.
    I am no Gardner and have no green thumb, so when a plant does flourish under my watch I am keen to see it thrive and live. This slow death and sickness that I can not heal is pressing upon me and hurting. I wish I could fix it and make it better!

    • I understand, Deborah. I’m not much of a gardener, either, although I like both flowers and veggies. I haven’t put much time or learning into the process, though, so that’s probably part of it. Maybe 30 years or so is a good, long life for a Camellia. I don’t know. Wish I could help with some sage advice, but alas, I’m in the same boat.


What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
