a little perfection


After sitting at the computer all day writing...I had to get outside...and it was perfect weather...feeling a little like rain, cool, fresh...I went around my garden and did a little cutting and cleaning...how my flowers are loving the cool weather we so briefly had in LA...
Look at this perfection...The first bloom off my brand new camellia bush. I have wanted a white camellia bush for the longest time, and this Valentines Day...there it was...in all its perfection.

I am also in awe of my cymbidiums...look at them bursting forth...This plant was given to me over 15 years ago by my hubby's dad who grew them in his own greenhouse. Every year they grow more flowers. I know I am probably supposed to divide this plant up...but I am so afraid to. I have this plant by my back door and every day stare at it's beauty.



So I am outside getting my hands dirty and Peyton wants to play ball...so heres a few pics of my girl doing what she loves the most...

What beautiful flowers - I bet you have the wonderful fragrance of springtime in your yard ... and I love those doggy pics too. She's a real cutie, for sure!

These are beautiful-and you dog looks so happy! I so miss flowers right now, but in Iowa with a foot and a half of snow-I have to drool at yours!

That blossom is truly perfect. I'm in Corona California and I'm enjoying this coolish weather as well. I have a Clematis that I thought had given up the ghost, but looks like she's coming back.

I'm off to have a look at your Etsy shop. I have a shop there too.

I wish I had a green thumb. I can't get my flowers to bloom pretty like that. Peyton is a cutie.

I am originally from North Carolina.
I had a red camellia bush, really a tree, in my yard.
The birds and squirrels liked to eat the blooms. I think they used the blooms to line their nest.
This white one is beautiful, have never seen one of those. Mostly pink and red ones.
I put your blog on my site and also on my flickr site.
