Our camellias survived the freeze

I was afraid our recent freeze would zap the gorgeous camellias that have bloomed in such abundance in all our city parks and gardens, but not so. A few days ago I went back to Hampton Park and discovered these beauties. I took one picture after another, and they all had raindrops on him.

What a spectacular feast for the eyes. I always get a bit sad when winter nears its end because the camellia blooms will also end. What a joy to be able to wander the paths of the park, stopping often to admire those beautiful flowers.
