I have zero skills when it comes to gardening and plant care. To be honest, I don’t wish to garden at all. But, I do appreciate trees, flowers, and plants so walking in gardens give me the visual stimulation I want.
I took a quick walk at Mission San Juan Capistrano to check out what is in bloom today. Winter isn’t the best for garden viewing, but there are always a few flowers that bloom this time of year, camellias being one of them.
There are some camellia trees in the central garden on the east side. Three or four sit near Serra Chapel and one is near the “colorful” yellow wall. It’s mid-February and many of the camellias are open.
There are many buds preparing to blossom. I almost like these buds more than the open flowers.
I find my eyes wandering to the unopened camellias more than the opened ones.
The color combo goes well together. I mentioned this in my post last year as well. Very shabby chic.
A weird sighting today was when I looked at the white camellia tree (I have no idea if called another name) and not one camellia has bloomed. Interesting, and if you can explain why I would love to hear it.
Lastly, all the rose bushes are pruned which means there are only good things to come.
If you are local and you become a Mission San Juan Capistrano Preservation Society member then you can visit all year-long and watch the garden grow.
