this is the blossom that won everyone's favorite in the show. I particularly love white Camellias, but they are hard to photograph well. This one had some pink dribbled across it.

These hardly look real they're so perfect. Monticello gardens must all have one or two to several dozen Camellias. We'll be years showing them all.

Besides the wonderful show and judging of Camellia blossoms and the elegant luncheon, we were given a tour of two Camellia Gardens. Most of the specimens were at least one hundred years old, veritable trees. The varied blossoms are so beautiful it almost makes me cry. Next year we'll have two more gardens to tour--and there will still be more to come.

Back gardens and back porches are where the Monticello Food Trail begins. We sort of moved back in time to a slower and more elegant way of dining. We had guests from 16 to 86 and they all loved the food, the service and the atmosphere. We see more and more of these events--obviously people love them.

A friend took us to see an abandoned garden in the woods. It hasn't been cultivated since before 1940. Many of the Camellias are now trees, but there are many volunteer shrubs. The best thing about Camellias is when they grow from seed--they may or may not carry a blossom like the parent. Camellia children have a mind of their own.

This is one of the tables for the oh so elegant luncheon. We ate chicken salad, tomato aspic and Parker House rolls. Desert was a brownie with fresh strawberries. We had linen napkins, fine china, heavy silver and crystal glasses--delicious in every way.
