Garden Close-Up 2: Camellia

Camellia

The camellia shrub beside my apartment building’s entrance has begun to flower.

Camellias are in exuberant bloom in Sydney now. The colours of hot pink, pale pink, red, white and variegated stand out against their glossy green leaves.

This bee certainly seems to like camellias.
