February looks like…

febThis is what February looks like here in South Carolina.
Camellias bloom most of the year but in February they
they tease us with bigger blooms and lots of buds as they
get ready for the March and April explosion of color.

In my neighborhood  there are mostly red, white or pink
double peony or double formal flower forms. There are also
some single anemone flat or bowl shaped flowers that are white
with pink or yellow blushes.  Camellias are also found with rose
like flowers but I haven’t seen any of those around here.

When I walk in the winter it is a joy to see these hardy shrubs
showing off with a few blossoms of color when everything else
is just green or drab brown and gray.
