Candy Colored Camillias
Well, I think they are kind of Candy Colored anyway.
Here’s a link to a cool poem titled Camellia by Rabindranath Tagore.
I was surprised to find the Camellia Flower, which is extremely abundant in the Portland area, is essentially the same as the tea plant? So, perhaps after the apocalypse happens, and if I’m fortunate enough to survive, at least I’ll have a cup a tea handy.
There are many different varieties of this beautiful flower. What’s included in this post represents only a small sample of what can be found out in our local parks and gardens. Never-the-less, these flowers are beautiful. I hope you like them also? Please share this post and blog with your friends and connections.
Be sure to come back next week, so see more great images from my travels around the local neighborhood and beyond.
