1st camellia of the season!

The season is upon us in Maitland, Fl, at our Central Florida bed & breakfast. The reason I know this, is that the first of our camellia bushes has blossumed! Always first, this beautiful deep pink camellia is right by the parking area, greeting guests with its beauty. Soon the yard will be awash with all different types and colors, from large petal red ones, to small delicate white ones…they amaze me with their beauty every year.


Our orange and tangerine trees are starting to ripen too, and will be nice & sweet, ready to make juice by early January. Guests are always encouraged to take tangerines home with them as there is always an over abundance! Book your Thurston House room now and enjoy a bit of holiday cheer.
