White Camellia

Postby midgin » Mon Jun 09, 2008 12:48 pm

I love this camellia... every time it comes into flower we have rain. It is under planted with a 'Marge Miller' camellia...shame they don't flower at the same time. Please note my recycling of the old aluminum table top. :wink:

Beautiful photo, Midgin. Love the table top, too. What a great idea. It really sets the potted plants off.

Thanks all. Ab, re the table top... I had no real use for it and every night the possum would knock it over.... so late one night, in bed, where I do all my thinking... I thought..AHA.. I know what I can do...the rest is history.

They're just the right size to fit on top of a half wine barrel. :)

Your camelia is lovely Midgin - very pristine.
