    Hi,

    I purchased a few camelias for my garden, and prior to planting them, I had to take a few pics :biggrin::biggrin:

    f6, these look SO nice. My wife and I have our first camelia this year and are eager for the flowers to open. Your preview is exciting!!

    Just for your information, I had to quit planting them, because the soil is only unfroozen for some 5 cm :mad::mad:

    So, I'll have to keep them happy inside for some time :cool:
