Winter Flowers

It was such a lovely surprise to find this bush in full bloom outside our door in the middle of January.  I’m adding having flowers in the yard in January to my list of things I love about living in the South.

A Winter Flower

Anyone know what type of flower this is? Hope the New Year is off to a lovely start for everyone!

    • Hi Heather, Thanks! I enjoy reading your blog as well.
      It seems like the consensus is that the flowering bush is a camellia. I’ve always considered myself a plant person, but I am going to need to learn all the new plants around here.

  1. That looks like a Camellia bush. They’re beautiful and you’re lucky to have flowers blooming this time of year. Everything’s hibernating here now. Too cold!!

    • Thanks Susan! This is the first time I’ve lived in a place warm enough to have winter flowers. I noticed the buds on the bush a few weeks ago, but was not expecting it to bloom until the spring. It was a pretty surprise, although I miss the beauty of a fresh blanket of snow.

  2. Oh My Marie ~ What a lovely sight to see in Jan.
    As I look out our dining room window I see 8″ of snow!!!

    Happy New Year to you and your groom…
