    Would love to be beside a glowing fire today Cathy – a radiator doesn’t quite have the same appeal.
    ‘Jelena’ is a star in your winter garden!

    I can feel the warmth from here. 😉 Looks better than ever this year. When was it planted Cathy?

    • Cathy says:

      I checked back on last year and yes, she is flowering better this year and I shall show a comparison soon, probably for Six on Saturday. I think I have probably had it for about 15 years but I shall check back old photographs and and get a more accurate date. It was certainly one of the first I had, but I have got a feeling I might have replaced the original as at first I tried planting them on the edge of the woodland before realising they needed a more open situation

      I have done a check back on the blog (that search button is so useful, as is the search month option!) and it was only planted in March 2013 (as a replacement, as I thought) when it was no more than 2 feet high at the very most.

        I have found the same Cathy… my memory is sketchy at times so I do often find myself searching my own and other blogs for things I have forgotten! So the witch hazel needed a few years to get to that size. I prefer to get small shrubs and let them settle in a few years so I will definitely get round to buying one soon! Thanks Cathy.

  3. It is looking great this year. Much more substantial and luscious!

    Now that is some much needed ‘good news!’

  5. That’s a beauty! Thanks for sharing the warmth!

    What a beautiful blaze!

  7. I feel the warmth of Jelena’s “flames”: she is exuberant, magnificent, in full splendor, I love it and I love it. It is a jewel in this month for the garden: all flower, I love it. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita.
