Still blooming after all these months !


Photo Information
I posted a shot of our white camellia when it came into bloom last November.
As fast as the frost turns them brown more buds open, as this one seen today (20th March) - 4 months on !
There are still plenty more buds still waiting to open (see top right in this shot)

Many thanks, Giulio and David.

This bush is even more remarkable when you consider that it is growing in a flint packed clay soil over a chalk subsoil !
It really is a 'survivor' !

Best regards
Peter

We're lucky here in Toronto if spring merely arrives, let alone allows beauties like this to survive winter. Strong botanical. Like.
