So, camellia plants. I bought a camellia plant at Descanso Gardens (wonderful place to visit), the gift shop had camellia plants. So, I just happened to fall in love with Bowie (that's what I'm naming it), because Bowie had red and white flowers. Just so alluring. And so, being the person I am, I bought Bowie. For $48.95. But I had a heck of a hard time getting him into the car. It was a free admission day and the parking lot was packed. The car was located about 10 minutes away. Easy, right? Yeah, not so easy. Why did Bowie have to be so darn heavy? I tried to put him in the trunk. He said, Nuh uh. No way, Jose. So I wedged him into the backseat. And drove 30 minutes to my house. And guess what? He has a bud on him that's halfway bloomed! I'll post pictures tomorrow.
No hay rosas sin espinas. There is no rose without thorns.
