My Amazing Camellias

The blooms always stop me. I have to pause by each shrub. I must touch a flower.

White By the Gate is blooming for the third time since February.

Professor Sargent’s blooms are too heavy for its limbs.

Each looks like it belongs on a lapel, perfectly round and tight with petals. Just add a pin.

Perfectly formed. Too pretty to pick.

I will take some to my mama if the freeze does not burn them brown.

How could something so beautiful just appear here? All I did was plant a twig.

If you are a gardener, you understand my amazement.

Miracles appear each day in spring.

Bringing me back to life.

Hold on folks. Spring is sneaking your way. HOORAY!
