In this huge classroom and plenty of table space,

everyone has lots of space to spread out without being cramped.

Camellia Blooms! - July 31st, 2016


Just a short post today,

I wanted to share these stunning camellia flowers

that were gifted to me yesterday from a friend.


Bev's Camellias i


Stunningly beautiful large double flowers,

so heavy the stems can hardly hold them up.

One flower fell off in the car coming home,

it fits perfectly in this vintage glass bowl.

Feeling totally spoilt.
