Wednesday Photo Themes (and the first blooms of the winter garden)

Thank You
Evolvulus pilosus 'Blue Daze'
One of my treasures from the 2014 Children's Fair
This plant has been blooming since the fair, a great addition to my "Winter Garden"
There were a number of these plants available at the fair, but not many sold.
This year I purchased a Camellia which was donated to the Garden Shop at the 2014 Children's Fair
Around the first of December it produced a couple of huge 4 inch blossoms.
Rose colored and flecked with white. It will be interesting to see how long the blooms last.
Ideally this would be kept in a much cooler room than I can provide. 

Another view of the camellia
This plant is hardy to zone 7 so it is out of reach for New Ipswich, NH, but would be great on an unheated porch.
Did you know that the Camellia sinensis is the tea plant?
