A Week Before Christmas

In the mountains of North Carolina, the camellia is having a very good year. Serious. This is not in the low country of South Carolina. You can call it the Lake Junaluska effect compounded by a courtyard micro climate effect and toss in the fact that winter is on hiatus. Some years the camellia buds are known to freeze.

There is a weak snow coming up in the diagnosis for me, but I doubt any of it will fall on these fishies.

Nice camellias. Mine won't bloom till Jan. We're in for some cold weather this weekend. Hope the fishes will be ok.

it is a good thing that you can enjoy the Camilla blooms before the storm.
