Backlit Camellia 1

Haiku 209

Crane towards the light

Revel in the morning sun

Surrounding Aura


Sunlit Camellia 2

The morning sun catches the top of my large Camellia bush, irradiating the outer petals. The sun is so strong, even now in winter, that it produces this other-worldly outer glow.

    How magical it is just to have the presence of being to allow nature to unfold right before our eyes. I feel so alive in these precious moments. Thanks for sharing this particular fragment of heaven.

    I love both these views of the camellia. Such a beautiful flower. You sure did well planting/planning your gardens for year round beauty to surround you. And we get to enjoy it too! πŸ€—

      Thank you very much πŸ˜€
      Quite difficult to get the front of this flower, as it’s a good 7 feet high! πŸ˜€
      And thank you πŸ™‚ Tho things don’t always go to plan – many plants have not survived and others have grown way beyond what the “packet” said; as did my fir bush next to the Camellia, that should have made 1 metre, and is at 3 metres and still going strong! haha πŸ˜€
