Photo Of The Week: Valentines

Valentines   posted to flickr February 14, 2016

I caught this couple down near the Wetlands here on the farm. I like how they give one another a little space, perhaps the key to a successful relationship in all species including us.  Have a Happy Day and thanks for the visit.


Just In Time for Valentines Day

This Camellia Japonica is often called Peppermint.   I’ve also heard it called Strawberries and Cream.  Whatever one calls it,  it seems a natural for Valentines Day.   Extremely hearty blooms, these are almost impervious to all but the most severe frosts.  They almost always wait to bloom until the dead of Winter.  I think this is the first time in several years they’ve opened up in time for Valentines Day.  Here’s wishing it finds you in the midst of a memorable one.   See you next time on most of this same blog.
