Glad my Camelia survived Freya. Lots of buds to open, fully recovered from last years winter. 🥶 ❄️ Not much damage from this storm the trees had already lost some twigs and branches in earlier storms but had to fix the old cow shed doors as Freya really wanted to get in side the shed. 🤣😂 hope everyone else is ok.

My #camellia has started to flower. It has loads of buds but many are brown damaged by the beasts but on one side the buds are just opening. I don’t mind what it does this year just glad it’s survived. Shona. @sho47 hope yours are opening.

When the forecast is for frost, throw a fleece or sheet over to protect the buds 😄

Thanks for the advice Hayley @hayleyaj 👍This winter's been so severe Susan @chapelbarn I'm just glad like you my camellia seems to have survived also. Think I'll have to wait a wee while longer though for flowers🌺😃💕
