And so it was on a lovely day in May I fell for the Stewartia then in full bloom and was blessed with it as a Mother’s Day gift. However the beauty of it, at least of the flowers, is sadly rather fleeting I find, as they come and are gone in little over a week.
These pictures perfectly illustrate how I succumbed to it’s come hither looks! This is it’s fifteen minutes of fame for this year.
My thanks to Mike for letting me guest post, and to Lucy for hosting Tree Following.
