The changing leaves are spectacular in North Carolina right now. I love the yellows, the oranges and especially the reds; but the color I look forward to the most is pink.
While all the trees are showing off their leaves, my Jean May is showing off her blooms.
I enjoy views from below and above.
I planted it on the eastern side of our deck. This camellia has thrived in this spot for almost thirty years.
I walk to the railing and stick my head inside its branches. I must be careful. The bees love it, too.
I know from the many buds that ‘Jean May’ Camellia sasanqua will be blooming for weeks to come.
She is like an old friend who visits each fall. I look forward to the arrival of all that pink among the bright colors of fall.
This plant owns a part of my heart.
