A Shy Camelia….


For a plant that loves the sunshine on its petals I find it odd, that in our garden, it is the buds that are in the shade that burst in to full flower first.

There are many more to come that will not be able to hide away in a dark corner….much to the relief of Bees that are magnetically drawn in to that yellow centre.

Elsewhere a few straggling, struggling Hyacinth are doing their very best to add some blue to the garden….


Also reminding us that the Bluebell season will be upon us soon and probably a little early than usual this spring
