Big surprise this morning.

The old camelia bush at uncle Leon's has begun to blossom. It's been at least ten years since this ancient plant has presented anything close to a semblance of a bud, and she's doing a darn good job of it. The leaves are not in the healthiest condition (any tips?) but the blooms are fat and white. There was even a hummingbird buzzing around it today!

These two-tone pink flowers have never stopped their bloomality. Lucy always sees to it that there are fresh cut flowers throughout the house (friends keep him happy with live orchids as well.) Now the bulbs I planted over the years are getting ready to bloom.

In the next few weeks, we're going to replant the boxes around the pool for spring.
