Linda,
The camellias are beautiful with your decor. They are such a gorgeous flower. I have never had a camellia bush.
Hugs,
Donna

Brandi said...

gorgeous flowers! I always wondered what they were called. I wonder if they would do well in Ga clay! Thanks so much for sharing!

Linda your camellias are so very pretty! I might just have to plant a few so that I can enjoy their beautiful blossoms!

The pillow is wonderful too, but I won't enter the giveaway, I have a bit of a pillow addiction and don't have room for one more. It is lovely though!

Beautiful! I'm a little jealous that you have white in the way of flowers, and I have white in the way of snow outside. Thanks for sharing.

Your camellias are gorgeous. I live in Central Alabama, and my camellias aren't looking very good right now....they are newly planted, and this first winter has been tough on them! I love the white of yours. Mine are almost hot pink. I am not crazy about the color, but they do have a sweet shape.

The white camelias are beautiful!! My neighbor has a hot pink camelia and it's blooming like crazy....even after several days of below 20 degree weather! They are reallty hardy, aren't they? Also love your vignette with the candle sticks...you are talented. Happy Spring from Houston!

Gorgeous Camelias! I have some smaller reddish pink ones that the previous owner planted. But I just love those big pretty white ones you have! Sooo pretty, you are a lucky gal!

Glenda @ Magnolia Bend Drive said...

So pretty. I can smell your camilla all the way from Tennessee.
Happy Spring!

Rebecca said...

Beautiful and I almost can smell them...
why did I think you lived in FL... all this time? Maybe because of some of your pictures... weird.
Anyway you live where it is a lot warmer than Chicago.
Blessings today

My dad had these all throughout the garden with his roses :)
Brings back good memories!

Camellia's are so pretty. One day I might try and grow one. Poor thing, I can already imagine it's fate in my hands. Perhaps I'll just admire everyone elses.

Cheers,

Ellen said...

michelle said...

They are beautiful flowers! I wonder if I can grow them here or if winters are too much for them?

Sarah said...

These are gorgeous. I'm sharing pink ones on my post. Mine were from a friend's garden. Wish I had some growing in my own garden. ~ Sarah

So seriously jealous here! I absolutely adore the scent of a camellia and always snatch up any candles or room spray that have it. Those look so lovely all clustered together in that vase! Thank you so much for linking up to Inspiration Friday Linda~we truly appreciate folks taking the time to come over and join us! :-)

Your camellias look so lovely in that vignette, Linda. What is that I spy beneath the round bowl you have them in? Whatever it is, it's a very nice touch.

Thanks for linking to the party. I would love to have you join me each week.

Blessings,

I just discovered something growing my yard similar to your flowers. I wonder if they are the same flower. White with a yellow center. Maybe so!
