Camellia (Camellia japonica (Camellia))

Lots of buds in waiting but this is the first one to open. But what has been eating the leaves, I wonder?

Is it frost damage Gee ? I must look at mine tomorrow , i'm sure I haven't any in flower yet , how nice to see yours so early :o)

I don`t know about too cold, I`ve seen quite a few caterpillars in my garden and they were all alive and well!

This camellia is in a very sheltered position so I think that helps it flower early. I can't see any caterpillars or anything else that might nibble the leaves - very strange!

That's just the colour we need for these gloomy wet days. Mum's Camellia has small round holes in the leaves, think it is some type of caterpillar Gee.
