Morning Glow

“Morning Glow” – A winter Camellia bloom.

“Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

With winter’s cold spell comes my favorite flower–the Camellia. Its blooms originate in southeast Asia, but they have long been a favorite here in the Lowcountry as well. The Camellia pictured here is a “Morning Glow” Camellia japonica. I wanted to share this with you today as a reminder that there is beauty in every season, if we choose to see it.

Thanks for stopping by today! I’d love to hear your thoughts, so feel free to leave a comment below! 🙂
