Simple Beauty

A sweet remembrance...

...for a teacher on her birthday.

While I wrapped a tin can with pink and green polka dot wall paper,

tied it with a sage green grosgrain ribbon, and...

embellished it with a felt posie and pink rhinestone sparkle...

the little student picked these luscious camellias from our backyard garden.

With over two hundred camellia trees in so many varieties and hybrids to choose from in our garden, my favorites are these ~ so ruffly they remind me of David Austin English roses.

And when the blooms fade and drop,

First Grade Teacher will have a pretty pencil holder for her desk.

Ciao amici,
