How did your Summer go? Was it as short as mine was? The good news is we are having an awesome Fall, time to head out for a Country drive and visit the Camellia for Fall Inspiration. Go for a walk in the fields and gather birch branches, ferns, bull rushes,  and grasses to place in your urns.
Add our realistic Fall mum bushes, and faux Maple leaves, some Pumpkins and you're done!

Welcome to the first Day of Autumn!

Fall is a glorious  riot of colour - shades of browns, rusts, oranges, and yellows. Fall arrangements can be subdued, in shades of greens and whites. The bucket in the photo above holds Queen Anne's lace and mini ornamental cabbage.

Makes a bold statement, with only 2 colours.

Dried Wreaths are so lovely, this wreath contains manzanita branches, wheat, proteas and pomegranates. Come into the Camellia today to order your custom Fall wreath, or take a class and make your own.

We have  a great selection of stylish, water and stain repellent tablecloths in stock at The Camellia.

Decorate with Lanterns,  they are great for all seasons.

Echoes of Summer and the Nicotina plants which the humming birds love. Fall is bittersweet, beautiful, yet hinting at the cold weather to come. Take a drive into the Country and stop in at The Camellia, we are Open Wed. 11-5, Thurs. 12-5, Fri. 11-6, Sat. 11-5, Sun. 12-5.  Cottage Paint class ( Beginners' ) coming up this Thursday from 6.30 to 9. Call 475-3551 to register.

Falling into Fall, reluctantly

 It's September already...and some of us want to hang onto that last little bit of heat, we don't want our plants to freeze, and we have no desire to dig out coats, boots, and even socks. As for the S  - word, please, let's not go there. Time to think about transitional floral arrangements - these ease into the different seasons without any effort or extra fanfare. Like this stunning Magnolia arrangement above. The leaves look nice long after they have dried up.

 Look at the colours of these pomegranates, great to add to a wooden bowl as a quick centrepiece.

 Time to cut those hyrangea blooms, to make up wreaths .

 Continue to appreciate each and every sunny day with blue skies.

 It's easier to sleep now that the nights are a bit cooler.

 Think about taking a Fall course at The Camellia.

Sit by Lake Superior and enjoy the running water .
We will reopen at The Camellia on Sept. 19th. In the meantime, if you need anythuing, leave a message at 807-472-8193. or 807-475-3551
