Camellias in Bloom...

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Here are some new photos of the camellias in our garden taken recently.  The light pink variety above is a  "Debutante Camellia".  It blooms early in the winter and fills the yard with gorgeous tissue-paper-like blossoms and is a good choice for a splash of delicate color in the cool winter months.  The brighter pink one below is an old, tried and true flower I call the "supercamellia".  I have no idea what kind it is, but it is virtually indestructible!  It lived in a cracked blue pot for the first few years of our marriage and has been sunburned, windburned, nearly drowned, snail-infested, moved to practically every location in the yard, and still it survives and brings forth these lush gorgeous flowers every February.  What miracles nature provides...

  1. Hi, it's Desha, from BYW. Thanks for finding me and commenting on my blog! Isn't fun to connect with other like minded folks? Is this camellia really from your garden? It is magnificent! I yearn for spring, here in VT the ground is still covered in snow, but seeing flowers like this make me smile!

  2. Hi Desha,

    Yes these are really from our garden. We have three different varieties of camellias and the two pink ones bloom early even when it is still cold outside. Glad you like them...

    Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting.
