I would find whoever decided to prune the camellias behind the Governor’s Mansion and stop them. At some point in the past, someone planted a row of camellias behind the Mississippi Governor’s Mansion. Japonicas, sasanquas, red, pink, white – there was a really nice variety of camellias, and since they were different types, they were different heights. They were all budded out and ready to bloom. Then, some time in the past couple of weeks, someone did this:


I guess they wanted a nice row of small shrubs. But what they had was a nicer row of camellias just about ready for prime time. Why couldn’t they have asked someone before they started cutting?
