~ In A Vase On Monday + WPC – Admiration ~

When was the last time I had both Camelia and Rose blooming at the same time? Heavens, maybe every year, but our roses are a good three weeks early and the Camelia are hanging onto the last of their blossoms!

Mother loved flowers and the Peace Rose was her favorite. I believe my kinship with living plants — especially the flowering kind, was instilled in me through her. On May 1, I would look for anything I could find to put in a vase and give her. In Wenatchee, is was usually apple blossoms, in Pullman, Lilac.
