Campos Calla Lillies and Love


I am in Campos do Jordão. Campos is located at an altitude of 1,700 meters (about 5,577 feet), in São Paulo State, and is one of the most loved mountain destinations in Brazil. I have spent many many winters here, since I was a child. Campos has been a set for the best childhood memories for me so whenever I have a chance, I try and come back. I just love it here.
My grandparents bought their house in 1948, and the family has enjoyed spending winters here since. Calla Lilies and Hydrangeas are the most common flowers in Campos and we have been lucky to have them in abundance in the house's backyard.
This afternoon I decided to take some pictures of the calla lilies. Such fascinating flowers!
A little later on it will be time to light the fire, open a nice bottle of vino and play monopoly with my nephews. Life is sublime. And I feel lucky and grateful.


  1. I love the photos, and absolutely love your description of Campos... I couldn't agree more! Life is bliss when I'm there.

  2. Enjoy it next weekend for me!!!

  3. Interesting, when we think of Brazil we don't think of mountains and fireplaces... But then if we think about the size o Brazil, of course there are mountains and cold winters! I love the pictures of the calla lilies! Indeed a beautiful flower!

  4. Ana, you are so talented.


  5. Aninha, que lindo post. Amei!
