I gathered a few Camellia blooms.
These were bitten by the last freeze, tight buds like the one
below will open with little brown patches of cold injury.
This Narcissus was leaning against a bare Crape Myrtle tree
as if to try to find a little shelter. I cut it to bring in. It was
so cold it had no fragrance.
The cold will last all week. We washed window sills and caulked today. Sunshine streaming in belied the cold outside and the keen wind shifted to blow smoke away from us where pine forests are burning nearby.
