Winter Planting, 2011

Hostess (and sister) Lily stands beside her mother Haruka's
favorite plant, the red Camellia japonica 

The Camellia Garden is planted along the slope overlooking the Cypress Swamp,
and serves as a backdrop, or `borrowed view' for the Japanese Garden.

Local resident Ralph Necaise has worked beside Walter
in the development and maintenance of the new Botanical Garden.
Thank you, Ralph, for making the garden a Success!
