Yesterday in the Learning Garden there was a lot of cleanup from the storm. Lots of leaves and limbs were down. After most of the raking was done for the day I walked around with my camera. Unfortunately I had some batteries that were on their last bit of power. Before the camera died I was able to get some nice pictures.
Here is the Camellia that Racquel spoke of. Turns out someone moved a sign and we thought it was Camellia japonica 'Mrs. Charles Cobb', which, if I thought about it I would have realized, too early for a japonica. It is an unnamed C. sasanqua at this point. As the bloom matures it turns pink. Both of these pictures are from the same shrub.
Another unknown pink Camellia that is in bloom now.
This ruffled double bloomed beauty is Camellia sasanqua 'Jean May'
A grouping of some White Oaks in our picnic area have a lovely array of lichen on them.
And for an autumn color portrait........
Have a great weekend everyone.
