Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, Dear Readers.  Whatever you do today, whether or not you are in a relationship, know that you are deeply loved.  It's a gorgeous day in LA. Step outside and feel the warm embrace of the sun, let the wind kiss your cheek and may the flowers that are blooming everywhere be your bouquet.

The camellias are going all over town.

I love them so, each one a ballgown, a parasol, the dainty blush of an old fashioned girl.

 There's nothing like the ruffly, girly flowers for the romantics among us.  And how wonderful that we get a whole day for ourselves too! Bring on the hearts and flowers because I love Valentine's day!

A thank you to the various photographers who posted these on The Huntington Gardens photo share.  It's the best time of year to walk through the Huntington Camellia garden ( it's more like a magical forest, really) so try to get over there in the next few weeks if you are able.

 Ruth at Flower Forums let me know about her terrific interview with Gayla Trail from the popular blog You Grow Girl.  It's informative and well worth a read as you begin to think about your own small plot (or pot.)  Spring is coming. What would you like to cultivate this spring?

Have a lovely day.
