Camellia Courtyard...

At the back of the house I grew up in there is a courtyard and it's full of Camellia's. They were finishing flowering when I was home on the weekend.

They were still full that I can only imagine how amazing they looked in full bloom...

Don't you think they're pretty?...

And I love this sundial. This has been in the garden for as long as I can remember...

Coco Chanel was really on to something when she chose the Camellia that would become Chanel's iconic symbol don't you think?

Does anyone know why she chose the Camellia? I have done a spot of googling and haven't been able to find a source that tells me. I would love to hear from you if you know...



  1. Hi, Jess -
    Beautiful photos of gorgeous camellias! My fall blooming Sasanqua white camellias are getting ready to bloom. In addition to the flowers, I love their shiny dark green foliage. Hope you are doing well :)

  2. Hi Loi,
    I love their dark green glossy foliage too. I bet your white Camelia's are stunning. I hope to see some photos when it's in full bloom. We are all well and I hope you are too.
