Garden Close-Up 2: Camellia


The camellia shrub beside my apartment building’s entrance has begun to flower.

For my second “macro or close-up of something in a garden“, I have a camellia. I think its cluster of stamens looks like sea anemones waving in a gentle current, but no underwater creature ever had such a lovely scent!

    • I actually thought it was a sort of wild rose when I realised it had scent, and it doesn’t look like I’ve always thought camellias looked, but Google sorted me out. Plus, the buds are definitely camellia buds, not rose buds.
