Happy March!!


I just wanted to welcome in the month of March (the month of the beginning of spring) with a beautiful bloom from one of my Camellias. I almost didn't notice it because it was on the back of the plant. They usually bloom sooner than this, but the weather has been very cold this winter. I hope this is a sign of good things to come. Tomorrow, we are expecting a 'wintry mix.' Hopefully, this will be the last of 'Old Man Winter' and his fury.

Dear Southern Lady,

A very happy March to you! Your Camellia's are so pretty! Ours bloomed beautifully this year too. I am ready for Spring as well!

Love, Paula

The camellia is so lovely. I'm so envious. We can't grow them up here. Can't wait to see how your veggie garden progresses.

My hubby dug up some camellias from a house getting ready to be torn down. I put them in pots and they are still growing! Now that I know we will be here for a while I will probably plant them in the ground. How long does it take before they bloom? I've never grown them before so I am happy they are alive!!
