Japanese Rose -Guest Heart Thursday

The camellia bush where this lovely flower blossomed is as tall as a house.  I know this is a camellia, but I love its other name--the Japanese roseLast Spring, Dad made me take armfuls of these beautiful flowers home with me.  It is a sweet memory which I hold dear.  I will always love this flower because of Daddy.

It looks more of a rose for me.

I am not really familiar with camelia though...

I agree with Maria ... it does indeed looks like a rose - even though I KNOW it's a camelia since the tree is right outside the front window!!!
