Camellia, Queen of Springtime

Outside – sleet is slashing down, angry winds roar, skies darken.

Across the Threshhold – Over the door step, through the portal, into the greenhouse.

Inside – Camellia, Queen of Springtime is smiling, her soiree of pretty pink, red, and white ladies gather to celebrate the end of winter, to welcome the coming Spring.

 At the center – I crown the mermaid girl in the wishing fountain with a fallen blossom tiara, curtsey, and bloom again.
