Flower in Focus

I wait patiently every year for my Camellias to start blooming on the bushes. Our garden has two bushes that bloom with the most gorgeous white flowers.

It is always a delight to bring them into the house and arrange them in a vase ... heartwarming to have something flowering through the cold winter months.

So when Trishie gave us the theme of flowers in focus, I thought it would be a good time to showcase one of my favourite flowers.
This was also one of Coco Chanel's favourite flower and indeed one of her signature symbols.

I love white it projects purity and neutrality from the beautiful bride who traditionally wears white, the pristine white interior of a house to the little picket fence that surrounds a happy home.

After women, flowers are the most lovely thing God has given the world

Please go over and visit some of the others who have kindly showed their Flower in Focus.

Thank you Trishie for organizing Flower in Focus

Happy weekend
