Hearts and Flowers...

     The Camellia House at Planting Fields Arboretum,
      a greenhouse sanctuary from the cold and bleak -
       A luxury of abundance with restraint -
       containing over two hundred camellia trees and shrubs.

       The effect is so fanciful and controlled, it reminds me of the Queen of Hearts' rose garden
 in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  I can imagine her gardeners approaching this white variety to paint it red, like - hmmm... those scarlet ones in the background -
                                                 Petals have fallen artfully to the ground ...
                                                      Every variety a lovely surprise.

                     Exquisite. !
 Wishing you Hearts in this Valentine's week, these artsy designs making their appearance
 as stickers on plexiglass dividers
 at the International House of Pancakes -  another warm haven for a February day...
