The lovely Camellia

One of my favorite flowering shrubs is the camellia.  The camellia bush and the Magnolia tree are southern favorites and definitely some of my favorite flowering plants. If these plants could talk I am most certain they would have a southern accent!

Spring has sprung here in the South. The Japanese Magnolia (The Tulip Tree) was just busting buds and blooms all over the place today.

Recent happenings

Ok I realize I have been missing in blogland of recent days.  Life is busy! But I will try to do better about posting more often.  Notice I said TRY!
So here is a bit of some recent happenings in our family. My husband and I just celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary!  We were married in the middle of a rare southern ice storm.  We had a beautiful candlelit service.
