On Sunday, February 13th 2011 I went to the Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, Ma http://www.towerhillbg.org/ to get my fix of SPRING, which was much needed after the abundance of snow fall this winter. It was their annual Camellia show. I never had a camellia before and although they seem fussy I found one in my home at the day's end! My darling husband bought me a simple white Shira ogi. It's budding up now and should bloom any day. Wish me luck with it! I am now a member of the Massachusetts Camellia Society http://www.macamelliasoc.org/ because the membership was free with my plant/shrub purchase. Not that I will be doing anything with this membership .... but who knew I would be a member of a society with such passion of a plant in which I never cared for before and hope not to kill:)
Here are just a few pictures I took (which I took over 200:)!!!
