Sky Watch, Bud Watch

The sky was a uniform blue today, so I put buds in the foreground so that those of you farther north can see that spring is coming.
Fat, Fuzzy Buds of Magnolia Stellata ‘Leonard Messell’ with one teaser.
Taiwan Cherry; soon little green cherries will appear, the birds never wait for them to ripen.
Oakleaf Hydrangea promises buds in early spring.
Camellias are just beginning to show color. Every freeze sets them back.

Sky Watch Friday is brought to you by Dot of Strolling Through Georgia.

    Some Camellias start in November and are done by Christmas. The later ones blossom, the blossoms get killed when there’s a freeze and then tight buds not harmed by a freeze open. Over and over this happens.
