from my mom's garden

Last weekends, we visited my mom's house. She has a great collection of all kinds of seasonal flowers/trees in her garden and sun room. This one is called "Tsubaki" in Japanese, and one of her favorite tree.
The avator I used for this blog and my shop is called "Otome Tsubake" and again I took the photo from my mom's garden. This one is my favorite one of all! It'll bloom in a month from now on. Cannot wait!
I guess many of you already noticed that I LOVE pink flowers.
So I'm taking lots of flowers in pink.

Okay, girls.
Have a great weekends!!

Gorgeous! I can see why you like pink flowers with ones like this. ;)

I believe these are called camellias in English, for what it's worth. :)
