Fading Camellia Flower


In Spring, it is easy to focus on the new, the bright, the beautiful.

And to miss the intrinsic qualities of the old, the brown, the fading.

  4. The old, the brown and the fading are all an intrinsic part of that wonderful cycle. Lovely photo.

  5. Karen, excellent photo, I leave loads of things in the garden over winter for just that reason, oh and I hate dead heading.

  7. Easy gardener – you are welcome any Sunday – but its a bit of a long drive 🙂

    Gary – well I am not a great deadheader either, I like seeing plants go through the fading stage.

    Philip – thank you. I am enjoying taking a picture every day and posting it here – so it is nice to get feedback.

    Dobby – we have had two days of sun!!! Didn’t you?

    Aerie-el thanks, glad it resonated with you also.

    Yes, we had 2 days of sun on our side of the bay, but not exactly warm enough to get the bikini on and sunbath. So, no sun tan yet!
