Two Camellias

 Gardeners often want plants that are not ideal for their climate, their soil or the amount of sun in their garden. Who can resist camellias, in full bloom while most flowers have barely poked up green shoots? In "borderline" gardening zones, people try to lessen the risk by planting a camellia on the southern side of the house. Some place it near the dryer vent which provides some warm air. My friend’s camellia grows in a protected spot against a wall. The spring winds are chilly but the fluttering camellia blossoms prove that warmer days are coming soon.
