Common Camellia

Common Camellia
Camellia japonica 'Mathotiana Rosea'
(kuh-MEE-lee-a) (juh-PON-ih-kuh)
Synonyms: Japanese Camellia

There was nothing common about this Camellia as it bloomed in the dappled shade of Central Florida. The formal flowers were big and pretty much a glowing pink. The plant, more like a tree actually, was tall and stately. Camellias are one of my favorite landscape plants but we are confined to growing them in containers in this area, which I have found difficult.

Everything here is kind of gearing up to our band’s first gig on Saturday night (18th). We are playing two sets from 8 to 10 pm at Molten Java’s.

They have moved to a cool new site, which was a major upgrade. We sound good but I am sure there is going to be a few arrangement and sound issues but I am looking forward to getting out there again. It’s fun that both of my grandchildren will be there.
