Greeting friends as they arrive each year are my true birthdays. Knowing I've made it another year when I enjoy the fragrance of Tea Olive, Gardenia, Akebia or the beauty of Marchesa Boccella, Camellia 'Setsugekka' & etc...

Everyday is a birthday in my garden.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

They are absolutely beautiful. I love roses and envy anyone with the talent to grow them. I gave up and replaced mine with peonies and hydrangeas.

I love these -- I am so with you -- as I go about town I keep noticing all of the camellia buds growing -- any day now they will all explode and their color will be scattered all over town!

I loved you point on "savor" -- how nice to think of the up side - we have all been humbled and it has given us a new perspective on life.

I am heading to Display and Costume to try to figure out what in the world I will wear to a toga party tonight!! I am bringing my alabaster lamp, with the intent of stopping in to work on a shade with you (and to say hello)!! xo

I always knew your friends are beautiful! I have a new friend I named Lily today...a hummingbird has built her nest in my chandelier and she is sitting on two eggs:)

I can't wait for Gertrude Jekyl's face to emerge in my garden :) And her perfume is heavenly! One of my all time favorites in my garden. And I also love New Dawn.
