CAMILLIAS – beautiful flowers which herald the start of spring in our garden. We inherited the bushes when we bought the property and every year, without fail I marvel at the big fat buds pushing through the foliage against the cold, wet and windy weather. Then one bursts into full bloom and shortly the bushes are transformed from shiny green to pink. All different shades of pink -

here they are – they speak for themselves.

And after I had “played” with it to give a pen & ink look.

I hope you have enjoyed my camellias and I hope you will click on the Pink Saturday button to visit Beverley and other participants.

  2. Pink is my favorite color - no other compares, so Pink Saturday is the day when I can sit back, look at sweet pink goodies and visit some of the most lovely blogs in cyberspace.

  5. Oh JJ!
    Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie.
    I love these camellias as I am scrolling through looking at their vibrant colors and happiness that they bring to you. When I get to the end, much to my surprise you have pen and inked them. They are exquisite. You have done a beautiful job. What a wonderful God given talent you have, and then to share with us. Thank you so much JJ. I have so enjoyed my visit here today.

  8. Thank you so much for stopping by! (If you want to translate my posts, there is a google-translator-button in my sidebar. Sometimes I also give a little roundup in English language, but unfortunately I forgot it this time ...)
    Your flower-pictures and your "ink-artwork" are really pretty!
    I hope you had a wonderful Pink Saturday!

    Warm autumn-regards from Austria, Traude

  9. They are so beautiful! Each and everyone of them. How lucky are you to be able to see them everyday and smell their sweet scent. The fourth one looks like it has splashes of pain in it :-)
