Blooming Winter

Thursday, February 15th, 2024

Those who dare to cross the spongy wet bog that should be a garden lawn will be rewarded with the sight of not just camelia blooms, which are to be expected at this time of the year, but also a few rhododendron flowers, albeit small and undernourished in appearance. I have never seen these in February before, and we’re still nowhere near the end of the month. It feels more like April this week.
