- On Thursday, March 3 at the end of the day with still some sun light, I took these pictures. It was so pretty for capturing our blooming Camellia Sinensis Tea Plant adjacent to one of the Japanese Magnolias; Magnolia x soulangeana.
- Since than it has rained a couple of days so the magnolia leaves are for a big part under the trees...
- Rain is also not making the Camellias look any better!
- The Camellia Sinensis has not been that pretty in years.
- In general white Camellias do brown easily after a heavy rain.
- You see how huge such a flower is?
- I've put my hand there to turn this one towards the camera as it was hanging face down to the ground...
- This is the other Japanese magnolia at 6:15 PM. Can you believe such lovely weather till the end of the day?
- Now it looks miserable... of course rain is good for the lawn as it just is starting to re-grow.
- The good thing is that we view these magnolia trees from our bay window at breakfast time and any time we share a meal.

- The Ipheion Star Flower is coming up next...
- Our pot plants meanwhile remain inside our greenhouse till there is no more danger for frost at night.
- Pieter is mighty proud of the Almond tree from a cutting, which is blooming inside the greenhouse now. Thinking it is already SPRING...
