thank you. I was really surprised it bloomed so fast, I was expecting another 3-4 weeks. Checked this morning and another bud is about to bloom as well.

We had a very happy Camphor tree at our old house in BR...every year the bluejays would show up to eat the fermenting berries...dark purple berries and a white car...UGH. But they were so funny to watch because they would actually get a bit drunk from the berries and flap and squawk and flutter around the yard.

Might have to call in the buzzards...no one hangs out with them...grin. funny memory...when my oldest son was 3 or 4 he saw his first clutch of Buzzards. We told him the name and when we got to Granny's house he ran inside and told her all about the big bunch of BROUSSARDS he saw by the side of the road..She was a bit perplexed as that is her neighbor's last name.
