Walk on Wednesday: Camellia study Part I

We want to know...more about camellias.

We took a quick stroll after school and before piano today through Magnolia Plantation to see all the varied colors of camellias. Covering our own front yard candy striped camellia to protect it from the cold snap inspired us to learn more about the true names for these gorgeous blooms - 2015 study #1. We will get to the bottom of identifying the varieties pictured here and get back to you!

As the sun scooted behind the clouds and the temperature dropped by the minute, this is what we saw... unfiltered, unretouched. In terms of showing your children examples of the magnificent camellia, you would be hard pressed to find a finer spot in the Lowcountry to best illustrate the various types of camellias... Magnolia Plantation is stunning in every season of the year and is a perfect place for a walk.

"I remembered small and unimportant things from the past... camellias floating above water in a porcelain bowl."
-from The Lords of Discipline - Pat Conroy

We talked about the colors all the way home as the craziest sunset closed out the day.
