An assortment of Wild Roses.... So pretty!
A brier rose whose buds yield fragrant harvest for the honey bee.
Locally known as Indian Blanket
The "Camellia" in all of its splendor!
"Gratitude" and "perfection"~ that is what for camellia stands is the bloom which amidst its essence, dreams, passion and luster has delineated the very term "love" over and over again.
“O Reader! hast thou ever stood to see The Holly-tree? The eye that contemplates it well perceives Its glossy leaves Ordered by an Intelligence so wise As might confound the Atheist's sophistries.”
They are sunshine, food, and medicine for the soul"
can you believe these little beauties are actually a weed?
" laughs in flowers."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am not sure of the following varieties~
but they are still breathtaking!
whence came thy dazzling hue?
"Hope is the only bee that makes honey without flowers."
Robert Green Ingersoll
