beauty / loveliness


solo post - L, Nikon

My camellia bush has 12 buds on it this year - seems last year there were only a few. It's one of my favorite blossoms of spring. Seems each year it inspires me. Or maybe it's springtime in general that instills a new creative energy in me. So I snipped a branch from the bush and brought it in to paint. I'm very excited about the simplicity of this arrangement - a single blossom, and a bud, in a common glass bottle - it speaks of loveliness.

Wow, love these photos of your fave flower! John bought me some tulips today (b/c of surgery) and I got my camera right out, baby :) We are a ways from real outdoor flowers.

Loveliness indeed. Gorgeous shots! We inherited two really big camellia bushes when we moved in here but they are bright red bloomers. Not as pretty as your white ones.
