It's not Camelot...

In Camelot.
The winter is forbidden till December
And exits March the second on the dot.*

No one would mistake South Georgia for Camelot... but today, like in Camelot winter was no where to be found and spring came early. Perfect weather for my mid-day 2 mile walk. The backdoor neighbors were having a family gathering. Several children where flying kites. A couple where practicing their casting skills with new rod and reels... ready for fishing! 

Here is a glimpse of my world!

Daffodil Days!

Camellias can brighten even the most dismal day.. springtime blooms are breathtaking!

The new camellia... Taylor's Perfection

Living up to it's name!

This little guy was caught in the pool skimmer. After rescue... drying out in the sun. 

I hope your March 2nd was a lovely day... spring weather or not. Good wishes for the remainder of the month. Daylight Saving Time and Spring are on the way! 


If you are feeling a visit to Camelot is needed... close your eyes... and listen...


  1. Oh my, so many flowers! It's a lovely sight for eyes, weary of gray. And the frog is precious. I have a soft spot for them. Happy spring!

    1. Enjoying the earliest gifts as the weather changes. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Dear Sue, you are lucky to have such nice weather! Here pre-spring starts, birds are singing louder, but still an unexpected snowflake might come down (son told me yesterday that he plodded through 20 centimetres of new snow in Bavaria - umpf!)
    I love those camellias - have one on my balcony, with big buds, and it will bring red blossoms in due time.

    1. Britta...We always have a bit of a cold weather just before Easter so the jackets remain within easy reach! The camellias have put on a lovely show this year. Looking forward to our world becoming green again...birds are singing here, too. Appreciate your visit!

  3. My heart always does a little flip at the first glimpse of a camellia each spring. I think it is the loveliest blossom. It looks like you had a great walk!

    1. I just purchased the pink camellia.. The plant was covered in buds so I couldn't resist these beauties! We generally have blooms from December through March so they add such beauty to the winter landscape here. Thanks for your visit. Hope all is going well with you and yours!

  4. So pretty, Susan! Love the colour of the first camellia - something between a rosy red and a peachy orange, just divine! Spring has still not sprung in southern Ontario, and today is Greek Orthodox Easter Sunday, and wouldn't you know it, it is cold and damp and dark and rainy!
