Garden Club Presentation

On Wednesday evening, Diane Roorda and I were invited to present on Camillas at the Jasmine Garden Club. Diane is extremely knowledgable, grows many, gibbs, graphs, names, waxes, judges shows, etc. Her display of samples from her collection are behind her. She was the “what” in the presentation with so much lively information. She is a Superstar in many areas.

I grow Camilla trees, most well established heritage trees, 80+ years old with no names, just hundreds of blooms. Not as showy but spectacular in their own right. Mine are displayed in the SE corner of this picture. I was the “how” of the presentation. I love the process, thinking ahead about the beginning, the middle, the end of the presentation. The design/plan of what we wanted the audience to leave with learning about us and our relationship with Camillas. Mission accomplished. It was a colorful team experience.

    Wow, what a wonderful gathering that must have been. It took me awhile to truly appreciate camellias. But I have fallen under their sway now. Your garden is always lush and full of color, Suse.
