kazzy_cee: (Spring tulips)
Not quite tulips like my icon, but my garden is showing signs of life after the winter which is a good thing (all photos get larger with a clicky).

At the end of the garden much to my surprise (because I hadn't noticed it!) is a camelia which is flowering. It's a real shame it's out of the eyeline of the house unless you squint and stand in one particular spot in the living room.  It's a nice large shrub too, it just needs a bit of shaping with some pruning after it's finished flowering as it's been neglected (as have most of the shubs).


Coincidentally last week I bought a white camelia from the garden centre as I love them and it's just about to burst into flower at the moment. It's in a pot as I'm not sure where I'm going to put it yet.

It's nice to know that it will be OK in the soil as we have acid soil here, so I can plant rhodedendrons and azaleas too (love that they are evergreen).  In other pots I have have dwarf narcissi growing. These are under the dwarf peach tree on the left (which is also starting to show signs of blossom) and the chocolate tree which is still dormant:
Anyone else getting signs of Spring yet?
