Camellias in Gold Vase - Happy Birthday Mom!

My sweet mom turned 86 yesterday -- a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to her ... and along with her basket of fruit and cookies (I wonder where I got my sweet tooth from??!!! LOL), these lush camellias .... for her love of plants.

The temps have fallen dramatically and it's going to be another busy week and work-filled weekend ...The conference should be fun though - all the greensmen in the area put on an incredible display of their newest plants, supplies and equipment. Though not a 'flower' show per se, the presentation of woody ornaments, blooming despite the season, will be a wonderful balm to the grey outdoors.

Have a super day!

Oh how lovely; the depth and layers of the flowers make me feel like I can reach out and touch them. And I love the colors too! What a nice thing to do for your Mom.
