In my next life I will live in a Camelia House. I will sleep there, I will read there, I will cook there, but most of all I will dream there.
Can you imageine, it took me most of my life, almost 50 years I think, to discover camelias. We don´t have them in Norway, at least not where I live, and I had hardly ever heard of them.
Then one year, in Copenhagen, Denmark, I discovered Tage Andersen and his flower work shop. I saw my first camelia, and my second, and my third and my...... I bought a book Tage has made about camelias.
I was lost at once. Completely lost.
I do have a camelia at hoe now, which I bought a few years ago. After I met Tage. It grows quite a lot, I let it hibernate indoors. It is green and beautiful.
But it never gets flowers.
Not even buds.
I have been to Woburn Abbey and Gardens today, with a blogging friend.
Will blog more about Woburn later, but just had to share some of the camelias.
