“Good Neighbors”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
At this time of year the neighbor’s garden is giving us a wonderful borrowed view. I have already posted about her redbud tree that is already in bloom. Well, right next to our property line are several, large Camellia bushes that are just covered in blooms. Even though they are not ours, we do get to enjoy some very pretty flowers.
My neighbor is very generous and doesn’t mind if I pick a few of her camellias. At this time of year, there is nothing that brightens a home more than camellias floating in a low bowl. It is a simple but lovely way to display these very pretty winter flowers.
These flowering shrubs certainly make very good neighbors.
