Blooms In The Rain
It's a dismal, drizzly, day here but I wanted to get out for a few moments to check on my late winter blooms around the yard! This time of year is a little depressing to me, with so much brown in the landscape; so these blooms are a cheery sight.
The red Camellias are in full bloom. I showed a couple of perfect red blooms in my Ruby Tuesday post this week. THIS picture is a shot of the 3 red bushes that I have, showing how abundantly they do bloom; also note the fallen blossoms around the bushes.

I only have one bush of this delicate pink Camellia and I'm sorry this picture is a little blurred.
It is just now coming into bloom- while the red ones have been blooming for awhile now.
Apparently these flowers each have their own time for blooming because a neighbor brought me these blooms below from his place, at least 3 weeks ago.
There are many colors/varieties/sizes of these flowers! Some of these were really spectacular-in color and in size!
The Azaleas are starting to bloom, too. When they are fully bloomed out they are a solid blanket of pink, with barely a bit of the green leaves showing! We have a long, double line of these and they put on quite a show! :)
And here are a couple of early blossoming trees-the Wild Plum, with white blooms and the Red Bud, with pink blooms!
I love all these early blooming plants but they all have very short blooming times!
:) However, they serve to get me in the mood for more flowers to come in Spring and Summer!
