The Lady of the Camellias! MonoMonday 116
After such a busy week of lunches, dinners, antiquing, a concert and of course the opening of the ballet season…. Swan Lake……. swooooooon. I was looking forward to a much quieter week this week, but looks like I’ve got a few work projects to complete.
I am trying to catch up on blips and do so enjoy looking at all the gorgeous photography. So much talent and creativity out there, I’m often happy just to get an image in focus and over the moon when I catch a reasonably clear shot of wildlife.
Took a break at lunchtime, scampered about the garden taking a few shots and happy to see the Camellias are just starting to bloom….
This particular plant is only a few years old and the first time it’s had more than two flowers! The buds are tinged with pink, opening to pure white, and I counted at least a dozen or so flowers with at least two dozen more buds….. New Beginnings.
