According to the calendar, winter has arrived, though it's been relatively mild so far - and my camellias seem to be delighting in an extended flowering season. This has gladdened my heart, particularly as they really suffered during the rolling heat waves of summer.
These camellias have a slight fragrance. Their nectar also attracts native honey eaters, like this wattle bird.
I love the way they look close up . . .
. . . and en masse!
I simply love this time of year in Canberra - and my camellias symbolise this to a tee.
