It must have been a lot of work for a weekend festival.

As a lover of flowers it was a bonus to see all the blooms.

Interesting assortment of beauties. Hydrangeas do beautifully in Oregon (they should still be blooming when we get there)...but amarylis definitely not. Raleigh is obviously a great place to garden.

The first pink one is camellia? I am crazy about them since I found out the oil is very exotic.

Thanks to everyone for visiting. To answer the question I think the pink flower on the Today's Flower logo is a camellia but since I didn't design the logo I'm not sure. If the question mean the first shot of mine, those are hydrangeas.
