Christmas Eve – still in bed with splitting headache.
Camellias as 1977. Very mild indeed for time of year. Supposed to be a 50°F xmas.

Williamsii well out. Pink Saluenensis by Gunroom in flower. George Blandford ¼ out very early. Wet year to date with gales. Many big rhodo’s and magnolias seem to have decided to live after 1976 drought.

10 degrees frost beginning of cold spell and easterly gales.
1941 – CW
Camellias out – oleifera, double white (Engine House), and a few speciosa hybrids. Cam sasanqua nearly over. Rho mucronulatum very good. Also a Sutchuenense hybrid above Rookery. Some lapagerias and fuschias. Odd bits of forsythia and hamamelis.
