  2. A beautiful capture, Denise. So nice to see a bright pink bloom, as it is rather gray and brown here in Nebraska now. :)

  6. I love camellias. My mom put a different spin on it when we were in Japan. She told me that samurais looked at the flower as they did themselves... that they would have to fall and die at the height of their glory.... their beautiful, bright heads lying on the ground. Sheesh! Now every time I see the flowers on the ground I think of what she said.

  7. That looked like a pleasant walk down nature's path, Denise! How lucky for us to be able to enjoy it!

    I thank you for my being a guest at TF today and making Luchie giddy with delight (it does not take much to make her happy) ;-)

    I will try to return later when the TF links are up.
