Magnolias and camellias flowering now

The magnolias and the camellias which Roland loved are flowering now, and they are quite a significant collection by Northland standards - our good rainfall helps them put on a show of wonderful blooms...

It is exciting to see is the young camellias flowering now which were seedlings John Horrell transplanted just three years ago from original plantings by Roland.  They are on the steep slope running down towards the swamp - it's not marvelous soil but they are coping admirably and doing well.

Their names are long forgotten but it is nice to know these plants were chosen by Roland himself, and thanks to John, their seedlings are flourishing and enriching the Wood, next generations of plants for next generations of people!
