“If winter comes, can spring be far behind?”
― Percy Bysshe Shelley
In the midst of Winter, beautiful blooms.
Last week I shared beautiful memories of the 2010 Orchid Show at Missouri Botanical Garden. This week, I am showing photos of Camellias in bloom during the show, three years ago.
Any of several evergreen shrubs or small trees of the genus Camellia native to eastern Asia, especially C. japonica, having shiny leaves and showy rose-like flowers that are usually red, white, or pink.
These photos and the Orchid photos, last week, first appeared at the original Back Porch Musings, February 2010.
Time for a visit to Missouri Botanical Garden.
