Camellias on the ground

It’s been a bit quiet here on the blog lately.
I’ve been stepping back a bit– trying to enjoy life without frenzy, and really appreciating the last few years with my children before they go off to new adventures.

The camellias are in full bloom. Their blossoms, so beautiful on the bushes.
But when I looked down on the ground, I couldn’t help but notice how much more beautiful they looked– their vibrant pink color, contrasted against the soft, mossy green ground.

They may have fallen off their branches, but there’s yet beauty– some laying on their sides, some still intact blossoms, and some now only scattered petals.
