Camellia sasanqua



The first of the camellias to bloom, always in time for Thanksgiving. Each bloom lasts a very short time, but you can see there are plenty of buds to replace each flower as it 'snows' to the ground, forming a carpet of white.

  1. Only recently, I discovered how fragrant these can be...you have to really get inside the bloom!

  2. That tree looks like it belongs right in that spot. Lovely!

I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
