Some like it HOT, but some like it cool..The Camellia, Thunder Bay

Some like it HOT, but some, like my Golden above, like it cool. How about you? Do you view the approaching Fall with dread, or are you a bit fed-up with the heat and high humidity?

 Plants are still blooming away ... here are Heavenly Blue Morning Glories.  It's been such a hot, tropic-like Summer, and the plants have been loving it. As long as you can keep up with the watering....

And today, even though it's maybe 100 degrees out, we're thinking Fall, and busy changing displays and adding our new Fall product to the store.

With all the flowers still blooming in the Garden, Bouquets can be quickly thrown together. I like to use branches laden with apples, and Grapevine branches , heavy with grape clusters.

 Time to start thinking about decorating for Fall - here are simple fern bundles from the Farm

 At Camellia's, we have fabulous new Purses, and lots of evening bags with bling.

One of my favourite activities in the Fall - going for a walk or a Hike. 

Have a fun long weekend, and be sure to stop in at Camellia's! Open Wed. through Sunday. 
Sat. 11-5, Sun. Noon-5p.

30 Hacquoil Rd. ( No, this is not in the boonies or out in the back of nowhere..!)
It's a simple 10 minutes from the Thunder Bay Airport, heading south along Hwy. 61 .
We'd love to see you!

Thinking Christmas in Summer, Camellia's, Thunder Bay


Yes, it's Summertime but for those of us in retail, we are fast forwarding ahead to Christmas. A difficult thing to do when it's so nice and warm out. What about you, have you made any sand castles lately? Play is so important in our lives.

 Splashing in Lake Superior.

 Gigantic Sunflowers from my Garden.

Splish-a-splashing in the water...always fun!

 A pink grand-daughter and niece would love this!!

 Snow-encrusted blooms....

 Lovely Pink and white colour scheme..... a departure from the usual red and green.

Summer is flying by, Camellia's, Thunder Bay

Summer is just flying by...hard to believe it's already August!! Hope you're taking some time out for some Summer R & R!

We've been lucky with the weather..lots of blue skies and tropical rains...the gardens are exploding!

Great weather for beaching at Lake Superior...and the water is refreshing, and not too cold. Have you been to the beach lately?

Hard to believe that Goldens need
