Winter Flower Friday with Dory

 Dory finally we have some flowers to show you...and they are fresh not recycled. MOL
Photos taken on 2/7/17

Mom and I are extremely excited about today too.  This is the first time Cammie (we hope
Cammie from Army of 4) doesn't mind that we named it after her).
Cammie's given name is Black Tie Camellia has bloomed.  She was planted in the fall of 2016....and the best news is looks like she will bloom twice.  All these blooms are on the back side and there are just as many on the front side too.  

Mom featured this bloom earlier this month...it is special because mom has tried 
furever to capture raindrops on flowers but was not successful,

Now here is a collage of Cammie's many faces.  She looks pink but as you can see in the collage
below she is R E D



Next up
Our pansies on their second blooming.
Our daffies have popped up but up but are not blooming these are our neighbors
The cute little white flowers are from our neighbor too we don't know their name

Mom took a walk down to an area close to us called Lead Mine Lake.
She saw this gorgeous River Birch  bark and the cinnamon colored branches on 
the Crepe Myrtle.  
The top right corner is the MOON...this was snapped at ~2:30 pm


Well that is it for today Winder Flowers with Dory.  Maybe next month we'll have the front side of Cammie in bloom.

Last and for sure not least today is
National Random Acts of Kindness
We wrote this little ditty for the day


Kind
by Madi(son) D cat
Always be kind, even when you are in a bind
It will blow your mind when you find
Kindness is contagious!

  15. We're having spring temperatures here, but I haven't seen any flowers. I hope the trees, shrubs and flowers stay dormant as we can still have nasty winter weather here in the Midwest. Your neighbor's little white flowers are snowdrops.

    Random acts of kindness always make the day brighter--for everyone!

  28. Madison, your flowers are beautiful, especially the camellias! I grew to love camellias when we lived in Tokyo, where they bloom in November and December. The little white flowers look to be Lenten Rose (Hellaboris?)

  29. Sorry Madi, spellcheck attacked your name. I hate when that happens, especially when I miss it.
