Happy St. Patrick's Day! The Camellia, Thunder Bay, On

Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone! And it's a special one for me also as this was the day one of my siblings was born on! Wondering who gets a holiday tomorrow to celebrate this day? 

This day is known for the colour GREEN - one of our favourite colours here at The Camellia. so today we will just talk about all things Green!

The green of Hostas in the Summertime.

The green of Lemon Thyme, this patch creeps and gets bigger every year. No-on complains though, as fresh herbs add great flavour to summer meals.

The green of leaves, without leaves, we would not have flowers.

The green of Hops, which grows like crazy outside my back door. Which reminds me, I was supposed to make Sleep pillows with these.

The green of Grass, which a lot of sheep, and cows, and goats depend on .

The green of this hummingbird, shining in the sun.

The green of growing plants, in a green house in Holland.

And the green of leaves, which complement our Flowers nicely.

Of course, since we're crazy for green, we have lots of Spring purses, Door wreaths, etc. in Green. 
Come visit us the Camellia today, at 30, Hacquoil Rd. South on Hwy. 61, left on Hacquoil Rd.

Spring Fever, The Camellia, Thunder Bay

 It's Spring Fever Thyme!! Some of us are tired of Winter, and want the snow and the grey to GO AWAY!  Today we're sharing Spring Flowers with you, Flowers are Magical. They transport us to SPRING!!

 These vases are Bulb forcers , very popular in Holland, when Tulipmania was on.

 Forsythia Blossoms ...softening the lines of this houseboat. You should plan to visit Holland in the Spring thyme, there are flowers everywhere.

 Tulips and muscari , at the entrance to Keukenhof Gardens, Lisse, Holland.

 Paperwhites..... they smell wonderful.

 Green moss....we love moss, and use them in a lot of our floral designs.

 Ranunculus blooms  - one of my favourites.

 Star of Bethelem (the tall bunch to the left), such a long-lasting bloom.

 Simplicity .

Have an old Fiat laying around? Plant it up!
