Christmas (Yuletide) Camellia

20121208-163043.jpg

Our christmas camellia is beginning to bloom! Must mean we’re getting closer to the big day! This is our first winter with this little bush – we bought it at a local nursery this summer for its glossy evergreen leaves. But seeing the little red beauties with their bright gold stamens pop open at this unexpected time of year is really a treat! Now I wish I had chosen one twice as big! Wouldn’t it be nice to someday dress a holiday table with fresh cuttings straight from the yard? Such a neat way to add to the holiday magic. 🙂

Red moon

I took this photo last Saturday night, but forgot to post it. The moon was so red that night due to the wildfires burning burning in the region, including the 130-acre Mother Lode fire and the 4,500-acre Dollar Lake Fire burning on Mount Hood’s U.S. Forest Service land. It was incredible.
