Hello First Day Of Spring 2012!

In New York, “What took you so long?” is the typical query to welcome Spring after a long, dark, dank, gray, snowy winter. Not this time! The predicted high for this first day of the new season is 70 degrees.

    the camellias in London bloomed in late February-early March as they usually do, now our camellias are out in Brooklyn.
    Some years they don’t bloom at all due to frost damage. This year they are glorious.
    That first pink blossom is a camellia for those who may not know.

    Where I grew up in NC, the camellias bloomed in Dec, Jan and Feb. It was always a treat to have fresh flowers from my mother’s garden in the house in the dead of winter…and to sometimes see the blossoms peeking out from underneath a blanket of snow.

    winter-blooming plants such as camellias, hellebore, and witch hazels are wonderful.
