What a great selection of winter flowering plants. My blooms are still late summer bloomers rather than what I would prefer which is some signs of spring coming.
I must admit to being quietly thrilled too, Christina – bearing in mind I don’t do anything to any of them (except inspect the snowdrops several times a day!). I don’t think the witch hazels have ever been as stunning as this year – and none of them are particularly big either. Hope your spring flowers are springing up soon….
What a marvellous array of witch hazels. And still Astrantia goes on… you have a magic touch Cathy.
The other astrantia has given up now Jessica, but this looks as fresh as the day it opened, whenever that was! And I too am delighted with the witch hazels – ‘Jelena’ was a replacement last year for a previous one I had lost but she obviously likes this new spot. I had forgotten how beautiful she was!
What a wonderful selection of flowers, and so many stunning witch hazels.
Thanks Pauline – the witch hazels speak for themselves as I don’t do anything to them except admire them and tell them how pretty they are!
I’ve heard of witch hazels, but I had never seen any…until now. Thank you!
Here’s my Wordless Wednesday: Oregon!
Glad to have introduced them to you!
All those lovely witch hazels, Cathy. I love them. I am still trying to sort out my snowdrops. Apart from being early what are the distinguishing features of ‘Maidwell L’? I seem to remember I bought it some years ago but I don’t know how to tell it apart from the others.
Thanks Chloris – the witch hazels definitely have a starring role just now! I shall email info on Maidwell L shortly
Pretty. It’ll be quite some time before we see any blooms outside, even though it almost feels like spring out right now.
After your snow it must indeed feel warmer!
What a wonderful variety of Witch Hazels you have. So many great colour.
Thanks – they are at their best just now.
I love witch hazels – and have plans to add one – or two – to my garden soon. A neighbor has one that always surprises with its early early brilliant spring bloom.
Oooh, do include one or two if you can – they are not especially large trees and don’t cast a lot of shade either.
Happy Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day!
Thanks Lea 🙂
No words needed Cathy 🙂 I think that your astrantia must know the secret of eternal life.
Don’t think she will tell us, though, do you? 😉
