Camellias in bloom

I recently visited Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay, NY needing a dose of flowers in the winter. The Camellia House is one of two greenhouses on the grounds and contains the largest collection of camellias under glass in the Northeast. The camellias typically bloom in the greenhouse from December to March and most of the camellia shrubs and trees were in the middle of blooming on my visit.
