Our camellia tree in the backyard is finally in bloom. It doesn't get a lot of sun over by the fence so I think that's why - despite having loads of buds - it's taken quite a while for them to actually burst out. Most of the other camellia trees in our suburb have been flowering for weeks.
I thought I'd take advantage of the ones that had opened and adorn our kitchen table with them.
There's still a lot waiting to unfurl - in fact perhaps too many. I think I've heard that it's a good idea to remove about half of the buds to encourage the others to open - I shall research and see what I can come up with.
