I have no memory when we bought this metal wreath that has been on our door (all year) both in Kerrisdale and now in Kitsilano for a long time.
Today I decided I wanted to record the beauty of Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’ which was a fave of Rosemary’s. On a lark three weeks ago I went to Garden Works on Lougheed Highway and found it with lots of buds. It would have made Rosemary smile to see it in bloom right at Christmas.
While I do not believe in ghosts or any human presence in some other world, somehow it seems to me, that something of Rosemary is in this camellia.
And in my melancholy over her loss I find myself smiling today.
