March Bloom Day: Late Camellias, mid-season Daffodils and Azaleas

I made some pics yesterday of some rude dragonflies on the Mule Barn door and wandered on out to see what was blooming without a thought of Bloom Day.

Camellia seedling, one of the last blooming.

Pink Gerbera seedling, throwback to the species.

Formosa at left, Pink Ruffles azaleas coming into bloom.

Formosa azalea and a rustic bench in the Upper Garden near the highway.

Pink Charm and tiny Hawera daffodils

Tahiti, a fragrant favorite.

Corydalis, a native blooming with daffodils.

Loropetalum has a long bloom time.

White Loropetalum overlooks pink Loropetalums and budding pecan trees bordering the Upper Garden on the north.

Lantana blooming in a sheltered spot covered steps to the Upper Garden.

Pink Pearl Azaleas on the North side of the Front Garden.
If you look closely at the horizontal branches, you can see fat Dogwood buds.
When Dogwoods are in full flower it is safe to set tender plants in open ground. 

Shrimp Plants have new bracts with white flowers.

Echinacea sheltered by pines, blooming early.

Happy Bloom Day.
