Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

It has been a good year for camellias, even with the bitter cold we had in February. The last to bloom here, Blood of China, has started opening.

Those are so pretty. We can't grow them here. Wish we could...I'll just enjoy yours.

Our camellias are in bloom too - aren't they lovely? Too bad their bloom time is so short though!
