FOTD – February 21 – Camellia

Welcome to my Flower of the Day Challenge (FOTD).  During the winter months, please feel free to use your archives and find some old favorite photos.

Please feel free to post every day or when you you feel like it.  Don’t forget that my FOTD challenge accepts gardens, leaves and berries as well as flowers.

My camellia trees are starting to get buds. This is an old photo of one of mine.

I’ve gathered a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

  1. Lovely! Your camellia prompts me to do two things, visit the Longwood Gardens Conservatory soon, and second, look through my photo cache to find the photographs I have taken of the camellia blooms at Longwood. Good inspiration today Cee. Thanks.

  2. If I’m not mistaken, camellias have an incredibly rich scent too. I have never grown them, but I think (correct me if I am wrong) have a wonderful scent and are not merely beautiful to look at. I am still awaiting buds. I was hoping it would be soon. I think I’ll go water my plants and whisper sweet nothings to them.

    • I had to look up camellias since I don’t know much about them. Their scent is not overwhelming on the whole, but there are a couple varieties people say really give off a nice scent. The one thing I do know is that the entire bloom will fall to the ground when they die off. The don’t drop individual petals. They are used at grave bouquets alot and are planted in cemeteries, because they aren’t as trashy looks with petals falling everywhere.
