We are almost in winter and the garden is still managing to show some colour.
The Japanese maple is starting to lose its leaves and we have had a wonderful show of blooms from the camelia sasanqua. You can see by the petals on the ground beneath the tree that there have been lots of blooms.
We have also had our first bloom on the camelia japonica. This particular camelia reminds me of a waratah. It is the camelia hybrid var. “Volunteer”. It was named to commemorate the International Year of the Volunteer in 2001.
