"You should have been here tomorrow." There's always something blooming that wasn't here yesterday.
This time it's a red camellia. I noticed yesterday that a little camellia bush, hardly 2 feet tall, had two buds on the side opposite the driveway. Now the blooms were wide open. It started out as a rooted cutting and has been moved twice. Lane's Mama used to call these red camellias, "Bloody China" (Blood of China).
