~White Wednesday # 149~

It is always amazing to me how the sun has such an effect on both my garden and my mood.  We had a beautiful weekend with temperatures in the low 80's and many of my plants seem to have come into bloom.  One of which is my white camelia bush.  I lost half this bush because of the heavy snow we had this winter, but it didn't seem to stop the blooms from coming in full force. 


I cut some and put them in a couple white enamelware pitchers.  I just recently found this little one and have never seen one so small.  They look lovely sitting on this cute white metal table with the natural wood from our little outbuilding as the background.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.
