Camellia Buds

Branches laden with bounty



Camellia Bud 2

It may be the middle of winter here in Cape Town, but this is the time of year that my Camellia really flourishes.

I’ve recently posted a photo of a large camellia flower, but the buds are enormous too –

Already weighing down the branches, even before turning into those massive flowers.

In between the severe Cape winter storms, these sunny days are idyllic.

And my large Camellia bush is a very welcome splash of pink in the green garden.

    I love Camellia. Here the time of camellia is over. More and more the fields are gathered. The cycle of seasons. Have a great day πŸ™‚

    Camellias are such gorgeous flowers. I can’t believe the size of the buds! Stunning color. How nice, in the midst of the corona virus and power being shut off and severe winter storms, you have something so beautiful to look forward to!

      Thank you so much πŸ˜€
      Yes, I take solace in my little spot of Nature in my garden. The birds, at least, are free to come and go! πŸ˜€
