Today's Flowers: What a Difference a Day Makes

Yesterday, Friday, I noticed the Japanese Magnolia was beginning to get some buds.
This tree frequently blooms too early and the blooms are short lived.
Today, Saturday, it started off raining but then changed over to snow around 10:00 am.
I photographed the camellia above from my kitchen door and the camellia below from my bedroom window.
The next shot is Pieris Japonica which I shot from my living room window.
The last shot was also taken from my living room window and includes my camellia with the Pieris Japonica. Fortunately, unlike my neighbor's camellias, my camellia isn't blooming yet and hopefully will hold off until spring.

The buds are lovely against that sky! I haven't seen blue like that for weeks it seems.
What a snowfall! We had a dusting of snow last night and a few flurries this morning. It's all gone.

You're getting delayed winter -- I am holding good thoughts for the camellia. (We had two beautiful ones in the front yard when we bought our home in Oregon and then lost them both in a late freeze the very next winter. Those and the daphne -- and I never had the heart to replant either one.) The buds on the Japanese Magnolia look almost like pussy willows!
