Blooming this month, a gracious plenty of camellias. The first time I heard this I totally understood what it meant. Basically it means ‘a lot of ‘, but you must admit, it is a more gracious expression .
Have I mentioned before how I love the south? It bears repeating!
I love living and gardening in the south. Happy Holidays Y’all!
That’s funny Sandra, I never thought about “a gracious plenty” being a southern phrase. Certainly grew up hearing it often here in NC. I love living and gardening in the south too. Your camellias are gorgeous.
You should show off your antebellum home more often. Love it, & you.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Beautiful camelias 🙂
Beautiful! Truly a gracious plenty.
Our Camellia is still in the budding stage. :o)
Ahhh – here in the closing hours of this December Monday, I am enjoying a late night “fix” that Sandra provides so beautifully. My “R. L. Wheeler” is in bloom now, I can look out my kitchen window to the neighbor’s fence right at my driveway and admire her abundant and beautiful sasanquas . Isn’t it wonderful that in December we can have something in bloom when parts of the country might be hunkered down in the cold? Our Georgia winters make us feel a tad less of a martyr when the heat of summer bears down. (and I love the snowflakes!)
Forgot to say – – “gracious plenty” is soooooooo Southern (along with y’all)
My red one next to the veranda is blooming…..What a sight !!
I feel I have yet to really learn how to garden in California…
