Just as the Boston Ivy starts to wither & drop, this CAMELLIA is getting ready to bloom. There are only 3 flowers this year,
so they are like jewels, rare & precious.
I will be checking every day because the flowers are short lived.
Next week I hope to visit a beautiful garden known for its CAMELLIAS. They have many varieties & colors that take turns blooming for several months, during the Winter & Spring. This may be my only chance to see them because the COVID cases in Southern California are rising dramatically. The garden may be shut down again. If not, I will be a regular visitor, because I adore them.
