30/14: camellias for my birthday

Among other presents, I picked a vase of camellias from my garden to add to my birthday festival. I’ll need to pace myself during the next week, as I am going out to lunch almost every day. What a life I lead!  I feel truly blessed.

This particular pink camellia is also known as the sneaky camellia. For those new to blogs, click on the blue words to read about it.

Born on the first of July, I share my birthday with some famous people, such as John Farnham and Princess Diana. It is also Canada Day and surprisingly, when I was in the city of Melbourne yesterday, I came across flags promoting July 1st as Victoria Day. Who knew? And how long has this been going on? Lastly, it signals the start of Australia’s New Financial Year.
