Camellia in the rain

I came upon this lovely flower yesterday in the gardens of Cotehele in Cornwall’s Tamar Valley.  I shall be posting more about the visit to this magnificent old house, but for now I’m wishing only for more peace in the world.

 

All best wishes to everyone for the coming year

  1. It’s raining here too, Tish. They suggested there might be snow… but it is just rain. Still, a very wintry morning to mark the new year, and lovely to hear from you. Wishing you and all your readers a very sweet year.

    1. Greetings to you, Shimon. We’ve woken today to the first signs of winter we’ve had so far this season – frost on the roofs. After a week of warm, if windy and wet, weather in Cornwall, it’s a shock to the system. But a happy new year to you, and thank you for dropping by today.

    1. Oh I remember that song. Just the thought of it whisks me right back to early years in secondary school. And all the very best of everything to you and yours in 2016.

  2. I love the fact that the drops of water on the flower feel like they are about to pop out of the page. Thanks for this beautiful picture.

  3. A week late catching up with blogs, but this is a beauty. Looking forward to following along in 2016, best wishes, and I’ll second your wish for more peace in the world
