Camellias in the Fall
The Camellia plants are still producing lots of flowers since we’ve not really had any frost or freezing temperatures this Fall. They’re in a well protective area in the community where the winds haven’t been detrimental to them either.
The still-blooming flowers bask in the morning sunlight.
A Camellia’s final days. No longer perfect, but the changing purplish coloring is beautiful.
Even the bees are still around, feeding on them.
Camellia and busy bee
Soon the buds and flowers will demise with Winter, and the Mother plants will bundle up their energy to save for the reappearance of their bright, beautiful ‘jewels’ in the Spring.
