I’m always disappointed when my garden does no more than reflect my own sporadic efforts , but it’s all the more gratifying when something turns out right, especially today when I am nursing a minor writing bruise in the form of a rejection (complimentary but still a rejection) from a well-known writing project.
But hard on the heels of defeat came success in the form of a win in Maureen’s book draw. And now my camelia has bloomed for the first time!
Not the biggest bloom in the world, but one dear to my heart as the plant has suffered a few setbacks, not least when a hanging basket fell onto it in a high wind.
So hurrah for unexpected success – may it be a sign of things to come. And thanks to camelia lovers everywhere (you know who you are!)
One thought on “Lose some, win some”
Congratulations on the survival of your camellia. I think it is the most romantic of flowers. Now that it has shown it is happy in that spot, I expect it will go on blooming year after year.
Book on its way tomorrow.
