Rustling Leaves and Budding Camellias

















Loving the winter leaves rustling in the garden as the cool winter winds stir them up.

The camellias are still budding and flowering, adding a pop of colour.
I am so grateful that the previous owner of our home planted these camellias.
I just leave them alone and they just grow and present these amazing blooms.
Don't you just love it when the neglected plants (only because you really don't know what to do with them) surprise you with their best?

Have a happy weekend.

Gorgeous pink! I have a few bushes with that same colour on them. Mine are just starting to bloom now too. I've been waiting for months for those buds to open and finally a few on each bush has started. Can't wait til all of them have bloomed. I'll be putting up photos when they do.
Love your leaf photos too, Pam. xx

I keep getting caught 'off guard' when I read someone who's talking winter talk these days. I'm so into Spring, but then I remember, I've connected to a few lovely friends all the way from Australia. Of course, it's winter where you are.

Stay warm.... your photos are lovely!
