Very beautiful Larry!
This is on your property?
Jan 14 2009 03:20 GMT larrybenedict
Yes, I think so Mirka. The tree was here when I purchased the property 14 yrs. ago. I've only seen one other in my small town (city) and I was told that it was a Vietnamese Cherry tree. Gotta call it something I guess! It's blooming a month early.

I used my big camera for this shot Sini. Although the blooms are past prime, they are still colorful.

Yes, Peter. This is the most "showy" thing in bloom right now, although there are several large Camilia bushes (look more like trees) in reds and whites....and some roses too, but they bloom year round.

What a beauty!

I've not seen them here, but we now have the almond trees in bloom, the buds on my camelia are opening out, and just like you our roses bloom all year round.
After the rain we just had the hills look like it's spring already as the wild flowers are everywhere......
Did I say how much I love living here? ;-))

Thanks for the visit Mirka. Yes, you would like the roses that bloom year round....doesn't everyone! It's the temperate climate I guess. We are supposed to have a "hard freeze" here Saturday night...first one this year. The weather people here declare a hard freeze, one where the temperature stays below the freezing temperature for more than four hours. (I think) For me, it means no bananas this year!.

Not cold enough for crocus here Rakhee, but I do have the 'snowdrops' that bloom in February.

Sob, sob, sob,, crying!!!!! Can you hear it? :) You have roses in bloom all year round, crocus, cherry blossom tree, camelia... I envy you and all the othersll! Here we still have to wait at least about 3-4 months to see the first crocus!! Right now the temperture is -23 C, I think thats -9,4 F. Then its nice to look at the photo of your beautiful tree and dream about spring! No more crying! lol

Thanks Jo. The cold air is here as well. Only 43 degrees right now and by Sunday, we may have had two nights dip below freezing. I like to have a few nights a year below 32 degrees. We do not get very many.

Yes it is Claudia. I enjoy it so much every year. It is the first thing to bloom in the spring season....usually February, but it was a month early this year.
