  3. I'll bet the Botanic Garden is a very popular place in winter in Helsinki when you're longing for some flowers to photograph. Such a delicate composition of macro and bokeh.

    1. Thank you! I've only seen them in greenhouses here. Our winters are too cold for them.

  8. Hi Gunilla,
    This is a beautiful shot of the Camellia. We can't grow them in our zone but I love to see them when I travel south. It is a stunning photo..

    1. Thank you Shirley! They don't survive in the gardens here either. They can only be grown in greenhouses.

  9. I love camellias. I imagine them to be an exotic flower where you are...we used to have some in our yard in Oregon (when we lived there years ago)...but occasionally they'd freeze.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
