I just couldn't resist posting for the March Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, sponsored by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. This is the 'Crimson Candles' Camellia japonica, in various stages of bud and bloom.
Not having much free time to blog at the moment, I put together a quick collage of happenings in the garden today... some blooms and some buds about to bloom.
From top left:
'Marley' Violas, 'Quinault' Strawberries, Hyacinth (forgot the variety!)
'HGC Joseph Lemper' Hellebores, 'Spring Boquet' Viburnum, Mazus reptans
Tulips (another unknown variety), 'Winter Hazel' Corylopsis, 'Reeves' Spirea
