Floral inspiration........

My garden is full of pretty spring flowers that I just can't resist photographing so I thought I'd share some of these pretty blooms with you all. These freshly picked flowers are brightening up our home this week.

Love the way this Camellia has darker veins on its petals.

This white Camellia with a centre like a chrysanthemum.

Love the simplicity of this single pale pink Camellia.

These sweet smelling freesia's are just coming into flower.

And you can't beat Daphne for it's heady perfume that fills a whole room.
Picking flowers to fill a few vases is a simple pleasure that makes me happy.

Lovely - the camelia's are lovely. I always think of them as 'perfect' flowers as their shape is always just perfect....

Catherine, your deep red camellia is stunning. I absolutely adore daphne at this time of the year, a sign of new beginnings.
