Camellias - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  Lots of things are beginning to bloom right now in Northern California including the camellias! 


Floating camellia blossoms in a bowl of water is the traditional way to display them.  I used this beautiful cherub pedestal dish I've had for many years.


I love the soft pink color against the aqua birdcage!  



I love this time of year when everything starts blooming!  The only downside is my car is covered in yellow pollen right now from the pine trees out by our driveway and my hay fever is also kicking in!  It's a small price to pay for the beauty of blooming things again!

I have some exciting news to share! I'm off to Hawaii in about a week and a half!  I've been dating a wonderful guy and he has a place there and he's taking me on vacation! I can hardly wait!  I'll be doing my normal Show and Tell on my blog next week but the following week I'll be blogging from Hawaii! I can hardly wait!!!  

Thanks to all of you that join in on Show and Tell Friday every week and thanks to all of you who leave such nice comments! 

 If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden.  If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog.

Camellias bloom much earlier here. They are gorgeous blooms and I always look forward to their season.

Cindy said...

Those camellias are the most gorgeous color in the world, what is it called!? And... that's so cool that you have found a sweet guy that you like and can have a fun trip with!

I wonder if I could "do" a bowl like that?! It would look lovely in my Easter Tablescape.

My Camellias are already blooming, too. They're Red and this is the first year I have them - kind of mess the garden don't they? But oh they're so happy looking.

Thank you for sharing,
Teresa

Thank you for hosting! I love camellias. They're so feminine, and so old-fashioned, too. If you haven't already, I'd love if you'd come join my How To Tuesday link party, too.

We get the yellow pollen here too and it gets all over our cars.

The camellias are in bloom here too and that is a wonderful idea to put then in that lovely dish! How beautiful!

Have fun in Hawaii!
