  1. That first shot is a camellia, not a photo, although my preference is usually for the single ones.

      The bees prefer single flowers; I think the doubles look like roses!

    these flowers and bushes are so pretty

    I’d give that first one a home, Jude 🙂 Ours are just buds at present.

      Mine only had one bud this year (it had loads last even though it was moved whilst in bud) and even that fell off when I moved the pot into a more sheltered position. Is it normal to have a year without buds?

        Mick’s looking non commital. I think good years and bad years. Talk to it? 🙂 🙂

          Yep. Given it the ‘Jude’ talk and the teacher look. Basically ‘shape up or ship out’ – that ought to do it 🙂

        Says no buds means it’s too dry? But he only read it from Google- not expertise 🙂 🙂

          Well it was in a small pot so that might be true although it did get lots of rain! I repotted it in the autumn and moved it to a sunnier spot, but perhaps too late for this year. Shall have to see how it does and give it plenty of water!!

    I like the colour of the first one, but prefer the simplicity of single ones.

  5. I noticed this morning my camellia is covered in buds – it should be beautiful in a few weeks. Lovely photos, Jude.

  6. Ooh, very pretty. I’ve had no luck trying to grow camelias myself, but each spring I enjoy the one in my neighbour’s garden. 🙂
