Candy Pink Camelias in Bloom

This week has seen the flowering of two huge camelia bushes in the garden. Their blooms are so blousy and 'in your face' but the candy pink petals look impressive against the dark green shiny leaves. I am unsure of the varieties as they were already in the garden when we moved in in November 2002.
Another pretty discovery is a  blue Barnhaven Primula that seems to have multiplied since being planted in a green bucket:

Mrs Duck and Mr Drake are always around.  They normally camp out near the back door, where the kitchen is.  They are fed by us and soon she will have her ducklings and they will be paraded and marched in front of us.
