I have a new obsession *this week* – Camellias!
I was walking around Santa Rosa, California on Saturday where I came across quite a few Camellia Bushes in full bloom. Later that day I attended The Lab Event in Sonoma and noticed Polly of Valley Flora had a sweet little arrangement of pink camellias in a turquoise glass vase. I have become completely enamored with Camellias and realized I have really missed them while living in Colorado.
Now if only I could get my hands on a bouquet of pure white camellias – oh how fabulous that would be!?
I’ve surfed the net for quite awhile trying to find arrangements with Camellias and found very few examples. I have the feeling that designers only use them when they can fresh pick the Camellias out of their yards.
