A Camellia Bloom on a very cold morning here on the farm. According to Southern Living Magazine, A Botanist to King Louis XVI of France brought Camellias to Charleston, South Carolina in the late 1700’s. This one glowing in the just risen sun is called ‘Pink Perfection’. Very formal looking I think. It’s been a tough winter for the Camellias here particularly for the white Camellias which fall victim to the subfreezing nights as soon as buds form. I suspect this one will bite the dust tonight when another frigid front rolls through. The weather people say we could have some snow. That would be nice. Winters without snow cheats us I think. Thanks for the look and have a great evening.
