Early-Blooming Camellias

Pin It

The camellias are blooming early this year; two months earlier than "normal", a word that I feel compelled to surround with quotes these days, as nothing climate-wise seems to be what we think of as normal.

I desaturated the photo to bring out the distinct shapes of leaves, buds and blooms rather than the colors, which I found distracting.  This bush will receive more camera study as it continues to bloom.

Looks like I need to prune an errant blackberry cane, too.
