For years I have waited on this camellia plant. We have moved it, pruned it, watered and fertilized it. This year from a very scrawny bush comes forth this beautiful bloom. Not much in the aroma department but with water droplet jewelery, it is drop down gorgeous. Nature has its own time-table and we sometimes just have to wait. I am really glad that I didn’t dig it up and toss on the compost pile.
