Camellia and Parrot
I dead-headed some of the flowers in the back garden yesterday, and picked up all the fallen blossoms around our camellia bush. This was one of them -- nearly flawless, still, with just a few brown nicks to show its age. The bush is still going strong and has lots of buds, so I suppose there are more flowers to come.
Our amaryllis have finished their first round of blooming, but we have a new flower stalk coming up from one of the bulbs, so we'll get one more bunch of blossoms this year.
What is this on the bird feeder? Where do we live, Brazil?!
The shadows in our foyer, that big room just inside the front door that we can't figure out what to do with...
And finally, here's Olga, and that patch of blue flowers that we've allowed to grow beneath the roses in the back garden. Dave mowed around them because they're so pretty!
