I took this in my front yard. Everybody else's camellia's bloom in February mine do it in late summer. Don't know why. I adjusted the color, added watercolor effect and then the fabric effect. I was just playing around to see what it would look like. I kinda liked the finished product; hope you do as well. I won't be commenting for a few day's, I'm going on Vacation but will be back Friday. I will miss all my BP friend's!!!!!!!
