I never, ever, EVER would have thought it, but I've now come to like this stupid camellia outside this window...LOL..also never would have thought I would want the blinds pulled up since these are not attractive windows, but on these rare sunny days that we've been getting, I want the blinds up to let in all the sunshine and I like seeing that silly camellia.....

Pretty! My yellow one is showing buds too. You have a lot of yellow center in your orange one. All of mine are just slightly different from each other, and I have one seed grown one that has yet to bloom.

I remember the last time my Clivia m. 'Solomone Yellow' bloomed, it was able to form many pedicels. Just glad it still managed some this time. whew!

Lovely, Tarev. I have always been tempted to try a Hoya, and have seen a couple grown outside here, but never got around to do it.

I always have this hoya growing indoors near our west facing window, and in standing water. Loves to grow in cooler set-up.

Saw for the first time a bloom from my variegated Aspidistra elatior. Don't know if this bloom is already in a fade away stage..still interesting to see, growing right at soil level.

Mini spring bouquet, the historic noid Iris was already here when we moved in, the lilac and flowering almond were given to me by Zuzu, dug up from her garden. Thumbs up

Sue, what a lovely scene. Do you use one of the add-on lenses with your phone cam? My non-Iphone takes pics, but they need some help.
Can't complain too loud about how the ball bounces when I'm the one who dropped it.

Nope, just point and shoot @CarolHB, I wasn't aware there is an add on lens for phone cameras. Shrug!

I took this with the phone the other day and was surprised how clear it came out, enlarge it to see. Or click on the 'more photo details' to see the full size. Impressive IPhone!
