Yes, Spring has sprung in Georgia. This is the only color I have in my yard, though. Camellia- Kramer Supreme. In honor of my Mother who's name was Camellia and my Dad who loved her so much that he spent a life time growing, grafting, and showing these at many flower shows. He won many, many ribbons. I remember when the old hot house got too small for all of the yearlings that he just built another- bigger- much bigger.
Mom and Dad are both gone now- I miss them soooo much- but many of those same Camellias I knew and loved as a small girl survived the devastation of hurricane Katrina. My sister who has the old house said they were glorious this year and still are, seeing they bloom at different times.
