Today's Flowers: One for my Home Garden Records


The white camellia in my front yard has one bloom open already which has never happened this early.

All the other buds on the bush are thankfully still fairly small and closed.

Although my neighbor's red camellia was starting to bloom way ahead of schedule, I thought my white camellias would be safe until at least the end of February. After I shot this bloom it was freezing cold that night and the blossom froze and turned brown.

I am glad you had time to get some shots before it was spoiled. I hope the rest of the buds will wait till due time. But you got some great shots. :) Unexpectedly!

Feeling worried about your camellia bush, but glad you got the picture of it. They used to bloom in mid-February in Oregon, but it is warmer there (supposed to be).
