I showed up early...I offered to help set up and stayed at this station the rest of the day.
Here, Michelle is showing me how to wax camellias. The visitors are allowed to pick one camellia and bring it back to us to wax. It does not preserve them forever unfortunately. They can last up to two weeks.
There were tours offered or you could just stroll on your own.
The lovely ladies from the Northshore Camellia Club were there to greet and recruit.
I enjoyed meeting them. Paula is on the left of the picture. She was a delight, and was very interested in our lifestyle. Through the window you can see there were camellias for sale.
This is just a few of the many beautiful flowers that were named.
And there was a camellia expert there to answer all your questions about them.
This is one of my favorites...pink perfection. It was also the easiest to wax.
This is one I waxed for myself. It is beautiful. We shall see how long it lasts.
This was the favorite of all...Frank Houser. It was also the biggest.
I really enjoyed being here for this event and learned more about the beautiful camellias we have around here in our backyard!!!
Until next time...
