CLICK to visit “That’s My World Tuesday”

I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.

We're having a lull before the storm. The sun is shining brilliantly, and the sky is blue. I noticed it was only 10 degrees when I got up this morning. I was outside a little while ago; it feels much warmer than that now. I'll have to check the temperature. The sunshine really felt good!

I hope you and your camellias stay safe in the snow! I'm always surprised, every year, to see its deep red flowers in February!

Yep, Camellia season here in Italy is just starting too. And they do look a bit surprised amid the snow, don't they. Great shot! Greetings from Italy via MyWorld!

Beautiful shot, lovely Camellias.

Such a beautiful Camelia. Hope it will survive the storm. Mine is in the orangerie, but Im not sure it will survive this hard winter.

A mixed bag where the weather has been concerned lately. Snow everywhere, craziness! I hope your Camellias do well regardless.

Thank you for giving me the feeling that spring is not far away. Soon our northern world will be green and colourful again (I hope, I am not convinced!)

Bet you wish you were still down south playing golf, Joe!!!!! We have about 8 inches on the ground --and I'll bet you have more... I love snow--but enough is enough.... ha
