Beautiful Flowers

I am not sure what these flowers are, but they are on a bush right out our front door. They are so pretty. 

We think this is the first time the bush has bloomed since we've lived in this house {2 1/2 years}.

I remember having the same flowering bush in my childhood home {a lonnnnnngggg time ago!}

Just like myself as a kid, my little ones are having fun picking the flowers... how can I get upset when they come in with a couple flowers and give them to me saying, "Mom, look I picked some pretty flowers for you!?"

All have been picked by the girls over the last couple of days!!

{Please excuse the excess of shots...I'm learning my camera!}

Some more in the bathroom {those bud vases are the best!! only 4.00 and some change at Target!!}

So much for not having 'anything' to share this week, as mentioned in the last post!!

Wanting to share with Kim and Friends at Savvy Southern Style-



  1. It's a Camelia bush...My grandmother had one on each side of her back porch. I used to pick them when I was the age of Maci and Mac!
    Thanks for bringing back a lovely memory, Jessica. They look beautiful in your home!

  2. Your bush is just gorgeous. I didn't remember what it was until I saw Lynne's post above. Beautiful, Jessica. I hope you have a great evening- xo Diana

  3. I was going to tell you that I thought it was a camellia and then I saw that's what Lynne wrote. Anyway, it sure is pretty. I wouldn't be able to resist picking a whole bunch either :)

  4. Oh wow what a beautiful bush. The blooms are just perfect. Would you mind sharing this inspirational post at our WIW linky party? Hope to see you there!


  5. So pretty...all of the ways you have shown them! Don't you just love to bring in little surprises from the outdoors? So many people would never give those a second look and I just had to pin two of your lovely and inspiring photos!

  6. Hi Jessica! Those flowers are so beautiful! I love to garden more then anything. Those look like camelias. I wish I had a camelia shrub. That's one that it is on my list to plant.

    I have nominated you for the Versatile blogger Award. Details are on my blog http://www.beneaththemagnolias.com/2012/04/versatile-blogger-award.html
