|One of the greenhouses at Camellia Forest Nursery|
|Camellia 'Thieves Delight'|
|Primula vulgaris hybrid (Primroses)|
|Camellia x 'Egao Corkscrew' - has interesting contorted stems|
We were only partway through our second greenhouse.
|Just a little while longer, kids.. We want to see more pretty flowers, right? Look at the cool flowers on a stick!|
(aka Edgeworthia chrysantha)
From there it's a contest of perseverance:
how much whining can the Mommy take?
|Camellia japonica 'October Affair'|
Okay, kids, I know you're ready to go home, so let's go pick up the plants we wanted and go pay for them. Oh, did we end up on the wrong end of this greenhouse? We might have to through this other greenhouse nearby to get back to where we want... And maybe we should go through this other greenhouse because it might be a shortcut... Yes it is funny how sometimes shortcuts seem to take longer...
Well anyway, I did thoroughly enjoy the few greenhouses I got to peruse through. And I certainly did not go home empty handed - with three Camellia x 'Mieko Tanaka' shrubs, two helleborus plants, one primula, and two kids, it was amazing we all fit in the car for the journey back home!
|Camellia x 'Ashton's Pink'|
Besides, after seeing all beautiful plants they have, I certainly will be back - though maybe next time I will pick a day that Mr. Red House can watch the kids...
