It must have been the sunny afternoon that sent me on a pruning binge. I decided the camellia needed to be trimmed and the bottom severely cut back. Nothing like a dose of plant management education on the internet to get something going in the garden.
After pruning the camellia, there were so many flowers that might go to waste, that I found a couple of vases to display the cuttings. They may not last a long time, but they will look real nice for a couple of days.
