    These winter flowers give us so much pleasure don’t they; more relatively to all the flowers of late spring. I think that there are more winter flowers in my garden than high summer, I must try and approach summer flowers in the way I would winter ones!

      This shrub looked sickly last year and had only a couple of blooms. I didn’t treat it so the weather conditions must have cheered it on this year.

      Oh, I love azaleas. Haven’t seen any yet here, but saucer magnolias have exploded into bloom all over town. I’ve come to appreciate camellias–evergreens that flower and need little attention.

    It’s a beautiful color, Susie. Spring can’t be stopped! My own Camellias are pretty near done blooming (they didn’t like our summer-like January) but the bulbs are finally producing blooms as our colder-than-normal February draws to a close.

    I have a soft spot in my heart for Camellias, but they don’t like my climate. I tried one in a pot once, and didn’t have any luck–even during the summer, which should have been the easy time for it. Maybe I had the wrong soil or conditions for it. I might have to try it again (outside in summer; in the sunroom in winter), because I love Camellias so much!

      Beth, I think I had beginner’s luck with this camellia, because I lost many plants since. Some were in ground, some in pots. Glad to have this one.

    Beautiful Susie! One of my japonicas, which I inherited with the house, just started blooming yesterday. Such a welcome sight…but it’s too windy out there today to garden! The pear trees along 15-501 are just stunning this year: early I think? Loved seeing you the other day, and I will post pictures of lunch with Julie!
