Today is a good day to stay inside. I would have a fire if I had anyone else to enjoy it with me and if I had time. Today is Thanksgiving cooking, and I had been gathering the ingredients all week so as not to have to go out today. Then last night I discovered I didn't have rice. RICE. I never don't have rice. So it's back to Publix again.
Even though the maple tree has lost most of it's leaves, this little shoot still puts on a mini show. And what is this? I do believe it's a camellia.
It has never bloomed before in the years I've lived here. It must be that I pruned it at the wrong time and that I neglected it this year. Pretty though. And lots more to come.
