Why I love living in the Deep South

Camellias in a period Empire Old Paris porcelain vase.


There is always something blooming in the south. All winter long I have had paperwhite narcissus and different types of camellias from my garden to fill Old Paris porcelain vases.

  5. Hi Jude your great-grandmother had taste! I love the French word for holders of flowers. Divine Theatre It might be a little too cold up where you are. Are you planing to plant them in the ground or a pot? They can't take snow or temperatures below 20". Hi Richard. Here in Mobile we have thousands in bloom all over the city and most are 15-20 feet high.
