Winter Plants


After three years of waiting, the camellia is in full bloom.

The pansies are still going strong. Even my oleander and mandevilla, which I didn’t think would make it through the winter, are still alive.


The basil was not so lucky.

    That camellia is breath-taking! My pansies are a bit more droopy than yours. And poor-baby-basil needed to be brought indoors. Do you know if it will come back? My parsley did. I didn’t know it was perrenial. Happy surprise.
