this or that thursday: camellia blooms

I can't believe December is here already! It's been a busy, but fun week after being out of town for Thanksgiving and starting to decorate for Christmas when I got back. Another thing that I love this time of year is that it's time for my camellia to bloom.  It's covered in pretty pink flowers.

Okay, now let's see what you want to share today!
