Some of the camellias were confused by a warm week and and a few opened up into full blooms.

Oh dear. I bet they are not so enthusiastic about blooming now. :)

Poor things. The second year we were in our home in Oregon there was that kind of winter (there was about 4 freezes, thaws, and refreezes) and we lost several bushes much like yours ....I never had the heart to replant, we put something hardier in there. But I still love camellias.

I think I would be a little confused too but oh what a gorgeous show they put on. Thanks for sharing and have a great week :)

Those flowers don't seem to welcome the snow, though they wear it well. Gorgeous shots.

Poor confused flowers. Wonderfully captured.

I love seeing blossoms with the snow on them, even if it means their bloom-time is shortened!!

Marie said...

Poor things! They are so lush and beautiful, and now frozen by the snow...yet beautiful still with the snow covering them!
