Just in time for Freaky Friday and Valentine’s day (I love that these days are back to back this year), my favorite Tim Burton creation, the Witch hazel (Hamamelis x intermedia ‘Diane’) has just begun unscrunching little paper heart shaped flowers. I’m in love! — I guess it doesn’t take much, especially this time of year.
And in honor of Garden Bloggers Bloom Day even though it’s still days away, here are a few other bloomers from the greenhouse. Please accept them as a special Valentine from all of us at Blithewold. As (almost) always, hover over over for captions and click on for a dramatic display.
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! (be mine?)
and have a wonderful extra long weekend full of hearts and flowers
