October 19--2011--camellias

I'm usually trying to make the background disappear in my windowsill photos, but today I wanted it to show up. That's because the camellias on the bush in the background are the camellias in the arrangement in the foreground! It's a sasanqua camellia called Cleopatra. So pretty and smells so good. There are alsoo a couple of stems of begonia, from an indoor plant, in this bottle (which is actually a Teavana container for hot tea).  

I  love the fall-blooming camellias in general, but I like Cleopatra in particular, because, in addition to having lots of pretty flowers, it makes a nicely-shaped shrub. Some of the other fall-blooming camellias are sort of gangly.
