Thursday March 18th 2021 – Attentive readers will remember back six weeks or so I noted the camellia I’d found in a neglected front garden in Darlaston. It had loads of flower buds on it and seemed totally unnoticed by the world around it.
I’ve been watching it carefully, and the first large, rich pink flowers are emerging on this stunning, beautiful shrub.
I would guarantee it’s not known care for at least four or five years; yet it’s a stunning, healthy, flower-laden picture of health.
A beautiful splash of colour in an otherwise dull urban environment. Wonderful to witness!
