Back at the Turn of the Year

White-flowered Camellia in Church House Gardens on 2 January 2013.
I'm writing on the 5th of April.  While we wait for it to stop snowing, here's a photo from the very start of January.

This shrub is in a park in Bromley.  It was a gloomy day, though not quite so gloomy as this flash photo, taken with my little Ixus 100, makes it seem.  I was surprised to find anything flowering like this at the turn of the year.  Definitely not a native plant!

Most garden Camellias are showy, multi-petalled, double-flowered types, but I like this better.
