The Bright Camellia

A pink camellia is entwined with Spanish Moss at Selma's Old Live Oak Cemetery. While the resting place is known for its spring beauty with blossoms of azalea and dogwood, it possesses a haunting grayness during the foggy, cloudy days of winter...that is, until the wanderer comes upon a camellia. This camellia bush is located near the Elodie Todd Dawson monument that was featured in an earlier post this year.

Beautiful shot. I will visit your site more often. Thanks, also, for stopping in at the beach!

Oh, how beautiful! I'd love to find something like that around here in the wintertime.

(In response to the comment you left on my blog, just to clear up any confusion... my town--Ocean Township--is not a Methodist haven, but Ocean Grove, which is just a couple miles away from my hometown, is.)

That's quite the flower! I love the little tendrils all over it. Great shot!
Thanks for stopping by my photo blog,

That is a beautiful photo! It made me long for Spring...and I'll admit to being a little envious of that gorgeous Spanish Moss! I look forward to seeing it everytime we head South!

Thanks for visiting.
Josy, Thanks for clearing me up on your town!

We are lucky to have Spanish Moss. I think we live about as far north as it grows. I can't think of seeing any just north of here, but there is plenty to the south.

This brings to mind an old woman, Camille, still beautiful.
