I can’t believe it’s already autumn. Time flies, as they say. So here’s what is happening in my garden.
While my Northern garden buddies are cutting back perennials and putting their gardens to sleep… I am enjoying an embarrassment of riches in the way of Camellia sasanqua blooms.
Some so profuse they look like cascading roses from a distance.
Last fall I finally found the Camellia sasanqua ‘Cotton Candy’ a favorite of my dear late friend Margaret Moseley. It was one she had recommended to me many years ago when I first started my garden, but I was never able to locate it. When it starts to bloom I will post a photo. I know Margaret would be pleased. Still on the lookout for Camellia ‘Martha’s Dream’ yet another of her early blooming favorites.
Camellia ‘Daydream’ which I rescued from a compost heap at a nursery. I followed the fragrance and found it. I have never seen it in the trade before or since. Of course the first time I saw it was in Margaret’s garden.
Mine is a garden of memories.
Your camellias are beautiful. I don’t know why there are not more fall garden tours. So many great things blooming right now!
There you are hiding in the lovely blossoms. We up north miss you.
A catch up is in order when your garden goes to sleep.
