Apologies for another 'upload-and-run', folks, this week seems to have a lot going on in it and minimal time for leaving comments, which I will do as soon as I get time. I do appreciate any comments on my pictures, they are always more than welcome.

This one is for Carol as I know it is her favourite colour of Camelia.

Cheers to all,

Dave.

Gorgeous, Dave! It always looks like paint-spattering with this flower since the red doesn't seem to have a pattern to it. Beautiful image.

It is the strangest camelia I've seen, Christina. About 95% of the blooms are this lovely abstract pink and red, but just a few (hopefully an upload tomorrow if I get time) - are pure red, and on the same large shrub. It's hard to figure out how one shrub can have two different coloured flowers, but it does.

Hello Carol above (Gingerdelight), the top of my shrub did catch the frost and the flowers went brown, but luckily the flowers lower down have made up for it. Sorry to hear about yours ;-(
Dave.
P.S Not that I'm too bothered but is Camelia spelled with one or two 'l''s? Could someone who knows please tell me? Thanks Wink

ONE eyeWink (i) (I) in camelia Smile its the same flower as mine of a few days ago very pretty dual colour which I believe on the one plant they somehow introduce another as in inter breeding - dont ask for more information than that cos I dont knowWink I think they attach another shoot to get multi colours on the plant as in the one above and then maybe a pure red same time. Digging a hole for myself now so leave it at thatWink

Good heavens, Carol, next you'll be telling me there's a 'b' in Primula' Wink Thanks for the Camellia spelling, I always wondered as I've seen it with both spellings. Wink
