A Photo a Week Challenge: LAYERS

Nancy Merrill has given us another interesting challenge this week–to share a photo of something in layers.

I first thought of a cake, but don’t have one available. She suggested roses, and that caused me to think of other flowers. I looked through my archives and considered roses, peonies and camellias. I chose the latter because they may not be as well known outside the south.

Here are three of my favorites:

Camellia japonica ‘Magnoliaeflora’
Camellia japonica ‘Debutante’
Camellia sasanqua ‘Our Linda’

Please visit Nancy at https://nadiamerrillphotography.wordpress.com/2021/06/07/a-photo-a-week-chlenge-layers/ to see her offering for this week. Others will join her in sharing their interpretations.

    I have a Camellia right outside my home office window here in SoCal! White color, don’t know genus.

    Beautiful. I have never had a camellia. I also have never commented but I have enjoyed your blog for many years and really miss the photos and your comments about your wonderful garden–it was so lovely and I admired your “arranger’s” designs. Thank you for sharing it with us and now your challenge photos.

      Thank you, Nancy. We’ve been in our retirement community for a happy three years, but I do miss my old gardens. I have to rely on my garden photographs to fill the void, so that’s the first place I go to meet the weekly challenges. Your kind words are much appreciated.

    Beautiful camellias! I love them but they do not grow well in Ontario’s climate. When I lived in England I had two in my garden. So thank you for sharing these lovely ones.
