Will The Real Spring Please Show Up?

 I was worried. 
Temperatures dropped into the twenties last night and my baby camellias were just about ready to bloom. Would they survive the night? The bush is so big it towers over the edge of the building roof and shelters me when I visit. I scampered underneath in the early morning light to assess the damage.
Hmmmm.....They look a little droopy (don't they?) and there are a few brown spots around the edges, I'll admit, but I think they're going to be fine. They have to be!

 Because you see.....
 has taken up residence under the eaves of the leaves

monumental construction is going on.....

 Birds know. 
Mamas always know where to shelter their young.
This bush will make a fine castle for fledgling baby birds. Meanwhile, I'm waiting for real Spring to show up.  Judging by the sounds coming through the tangled blooms, it must be just around the corner. Nature is a beautiful dance.
My camellias never lie.

Shannon - This has been the funkiest weather year ever. I know you must be even more ready than I am considering where you live.
It is supposed to be in the seventies by Wednesday. Go figure.
