a flower day

There's a sea of white outside with more snow predicted (starting tonight). Instead of surrounding myself with that cold white snow I chose to spend some time enjoying color today with a visit to the Lyman Estate.

One of the four greenhouses is the 1820 camellia house. The Lyman Estate web site states: "When winter is at its bleakest, the century-old camellia collection puts forth its magnificent blooms."

While it's still a little early in the blooming season there were camellias to enjoy.

More flowers from today's visit can be seen in the gallery greenhouses of Lyman Estate - 2015 starting with this photo and ending here.
