  8. Mom is in love with the Camelia's here in the south. She made squeeee noises over and over when they started blooming since she thought they were some other non blooming shrub that she ALMOST pulled out! Ours are a pink variety. Christmas Red are the next ones to plant.

  9. Gorgeous flowers ~ Xo
