Off-topic

I am so surprised that my Camelia is flowering already that I wanted to tell about it. If my bush were a Camelia sasanqua, November blooming wouldn't be any kind of surprise. Those have been blooming beautifully for several weeks all over town, but mine is a Camelia japonica. It usually opens its first bloom in December.



I brought the first flower inside to enjoy in my kitchen window. The bush has several more buds in the process of opening, so when this first flower turns brown, I will be able to bring in another one, then another one, and so on until the first very hard freeze.
