As I got home the other night, the weather forecasts for the weekend were that temperatures would fall into the 'hard frost' category -- the coldest nights since March! Yet, in the corner of my 'hidden garden' my pink camellia was blooming to beat the band.
After I unpacked, I went back outdoors and clipped a few branches to bring indoors to sketch. Good thing I did -- the ones in the vase dropped all their petals the following morning, and the blooms on the shrub were 'heads down' from the cold and dropping petals even faster!
Glad I was able to sketch this while I could!
