These are known as Straw Flowers here. They are like dried straw and last forever in dried flower arrangements.
Those are beautiful Whwoz.

Camellia japonica 'Berenice Beauty'. The blooms are about 4" wide.

I opened the back door this afternoon and and a sweet scent drifted in. Yep, the Winter Daphne, Daphne odora, is in bloom. Just a few days ago the buds were swelling and this warm weather has pushed them out. It is such a wonderful scent!



For the last two years it has bloomed the first week of February but the two springs before that it bloomed around Jan 15.
