Growing in the garden at the Sierra Madre Public Library
February is kind of Camellia Month around here. Nearby Temple City will hold its annual Camellia Festival on February 23 (many local kids, including yours truly, can boast of having been in the Camellia Parade). The Huntington Gardens and Descanso Gardens can be counted on to provide stunning displays in their extensive Camellia gardens. And did you know that tea comes from a variety of the Camellia, called Camellia sinensis?? Neither did I! Blogging is so educational!
