Although I've now been in Florida over two years, I'm still not used to the Winters here with all the green canopies and blooming vegetation. Coming from the north where it's brown with bare trees and many days of gray, it's such a blessing to me.
This is our first camellia flower that bloomed a few days ago. It's the first of many to come and Terry brought it in to me in a glass of water. The bloom lasted several days before it dropped off the stem.
They are white with reddish brown patches and have no fragrance. Wish they did.
Quick sketching to record this first flower of the season.
