Today a rest for the eyes.  Alabama's state flower, camellia japonica.

I think it should be 'camellia alabamica'! So fresh I can almost smell it.....

And delicately freshened with drops of water. Lovely.

Daryl,
Camellias really have no real fragrance. Perhaps you're thinking of the gardenia. I love the scent but it's too strong for some.
