I have one camellia.  It has had about twenty-five glorious, white blooms this season.  Such perfection!  An added blessing of this camellia is one branch with deep rosy red blooms!  This branch begins to bloom as the white blossoms fade.

The camellia bush grows right by a bird bath.  It also grows 
close to a front window so we watch as it reminds us that spring is on its’ way.   I clipped a deep pink, a pale pink, and a white bloom to float in the bird bath while I captured the very last beauties of the year.
