'Snowman’, an unblemished pure white camellia, is a treasure to behold as illustrated by the beautiful cover photo taken by Gene Phillips.
Camellias, artwork themselves, also come alive in artistic endeavors from Ikebana flower arranging to wood carvings to quilting and home designs.
The ACS Annual Convention in Pensacola, Florida is the place to be Dec. 11-14. Roger Vinson enthralls us with the history of this area and urges us to view ship wreck relics, statues, memorials and the Naval Aviation Museum.

Pierre S. du Pont gave the public this horticultural wonder, which contains a camellia collection among its 1,077 acres.
