potd - Camellias

We had a garden full of camellias in Japan and I've planted as many as I can practically fit in my garden here. Quite a few of them are still in bloom at the moment.  Camellias  appear on kimono silks such as this one but traditionally they're not considered an  auspicious motif because the way the whole flower drops (rather than individual petals)   is seen to resemble a head being lopped off. I love them anyway.
