Camellias!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ashley Hawthorne @ 2:48 pm

Kyle’s grandpa was a horticulturalist.  When they built the house, and during their time there, he put so much work into the yard at our house.  It has not been maintained, so part of our job in the next few years will be to get it back to a place where he would be super proud!  He had a special love for Camellias and the ones he planted are probably more than 20 feet tall.  There are about 6 LARGE camellia trees in the back yard and a couple in the front.  We have red, pink, dark pink, and white!  Sooo pretty!  I was worried about them b/c of our unseasonably cold weather here in Louisiana.  We had like 10 or 11 days in a row of hard freezes (first time since the 40’s), so basically everything in our yard is dead as a doornail- EXCEPT the camellias!  I went into the back yard last night and was really surprised by how many flowers had bloomed in what seemed like a day or two.  Here is a sampling… there are so many that I could fill our house with them every day and you would never be able to tell I had picked any.  These will most certainly be the backdrop for whatever landscaping we do.  Also, they are waaaaay too big for Harley and Bell to destroy 🙂
