In Bloom #41 + Camellia

Once upon a time, I knew the name of this camellia but have since misplaced it.  I was hoping to identify it by a image search, but there are too many camellias out there. 

I did find out the difference between camellia sasanqua vs. japonica.  It must be a sasanqua because it blooms from late fall to early January. 

Happy Sunday,

In Bloom #40 + After the Rain

New Year's Day 2021 was a wet one here in South Carolina as it rained all day.  I thought this photo was fitting with raindrops clinging to pine needles.  

Wishing you a Happy New Year!

Happy Sunday,

In Bloom #39 + Nandina

I didn't realize that Nandina domestica is also known by Heavenly Bamboo.  And, that, although the birds eat the red berries, they are toxic if consumed in quantity as they contain cyanide.

This volunteer Nandina was, no doubt, spread by a bird and was in the woods beside my parent's home.

Happy Sunday,
