Trip to a Camellia Garden


Yesterday my hubby I am visited Massee Lane Gardens. It was a pretty sunny day!
It is located about 45 minutes south of us, we enjoyed the drive since it was such a pretty day.













Let me tell you a little about it, then I'll just let you look at the photo's of these beautiful and sweet smelling Camellia's.

The gardens are maintained by the American Camellia Society for the education and enjoyment of visitors and it's members.
The 10 acre garden features one of the finest camellia collections in the world. It began as a private garden in the 1930's. Massee Lane Garden has served as the headquarters of the American Camellia Society since 1968.

Now we didn't walk the whole 10 acre's, that would have taken us forever a long, long time as slow as we get around.



It didn't take us long till we had to rest on one of the many benches!







Yes, you can but them, too!






Don't know the name of this, but it sure did smell good. The whole Garden smelled so sweet, I went down the paths, sniffing!!


























I think this yellow Camellia was my favorite, along with the pink one I put on first!

I hope you enjoyed seeing these beautiful and sweet smelling flowers. I wish you could 'scratch and smell'. Oh well maybe you'll take my word for it! This was only half of the photo's that I took!

Have a Blessed Day!

  1. Good Morning, Sylvia. I have always wanted to visit here. Thank you for sharing these pictures. The yellow camellia is a beauty and I love the paths and benches. I think the one plant might be Daphne - it has a great fragrance, too. Hope you have a nice day and upcoming weekend. xo

  2. The scented shrub is a Daphne Odora, I have always had it in my gardens as it creates such a lovely scent.
    Our Camellia are just coming into flower here.

  3. Thank you for sharing those beautiful flowers. I wish I could scratch and smell. Here in ND we are covered with snow and chilly weather. How nice to be able to view such beauty.

  8. Oh wow! That is a beautiful place. I'd love to go there. I didn't know so many camellias had a fragrance. Many of ours here do not, but I do have one bush that is fragrant. I am starting to grow several different ones in my yard, and I just love them. Wish they bloomed year round, but then we wouldn't appreciate them as much! Thank you for sharing this lovely spot. Is it near you?

    Just seeing flowers in bloom is such a treat - it stays winter here for so long.

    Thanks for the beauty; how I long to walk those bricked paths leading to loveliness!
