Camellia. (KO) When I was a girl my Mom had a camellia right outside our dining room window. When in bloom it was breathtakingly beautiful and the fragrance would meet me at the gate as I came home from school. Inside, on our dining room table would be a shallow bowl of floating camellias and the fragrance filled our whole home! One of my favorite childhood memories.
Peacock room, Castello di Sammezzano, Italy. This technicolor Moorish style castle was built in 1605 for Ximenes d'Aragona. It was abandoned until April 2012 untl the FPXA committee was formed, aiming to promote and enhance the castle.
