One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Tuesday February 7 in the camellias at the USNA
I spent some time today in the Camellia Collection picking up....not sticks, but more medium-sized branches to smallish logs. It's my own fault; I just haven't gotten through there enough. All the larger branches are out now though. Surprisingly I was alone. The weather was warm and sunny and at least a third of the plants have open flowers. Winter is supposed to show up tomorrow for at least a brief stay. Cold rain, a bit of snow (less than 2"), and actually cold temperatures. 19F Friday night? and highs in the 30's over the weekend. The good news is we're supposed to warm back up again into the 50 early next week.
