That red camellia is a cheerful eyeful on this dreary grey morning. The sasanqua type camellias are my favorite ones. The petals blow away and so no need to clean up after them like the japonica ones. I have one sasanqua that is heavenly fragrant. It's called Camellia sas. 'Hana Jihan'

For those of you who ordered beans from Rancho Gordo , did you get the post card with directions and tips on cooking beans ?
I missed 2 weeks of Plantidotes while traveling in mid Jan. ,but caught the last bean installment.I missed all other bean threads.
That bean postcard is really interesting.
If interested, I can scan both sides and send to Plantidotes.
