Signs of Spring: Camellias

Pin It
 The Camellia shrub just east of the house had shot up to such a height that it was blocking our morning sun. So, even though I loved all those pink blooms each late winter/early spring, I whacked it back a month ago to a light-allowing 5-feet.

I thought it wouldn't bloom at all this year.  I was so wrong.

Yet another sign of spring in my garden.

What signs of spring are in yours?

Gorgeous, gorgeous. I love camellias. I haven't seen any here, maybe too hot in the summer?
