Actually, it looks like it’s a Chinese witch hazel, which would flower about now.

We’re starting to go green around here too.

How do I get budding trees?!?!?

While it is somewhat troubling to go from bathing suits to babushkas in the same week, I can’t really hate on the weather for being temperamental. I’ve got mood swings of my own.

Yeah, what Mel said — witch hazel.
My witch hazel shrub smells like cat pee, but it is so nice to see some color in February. Keeps me goin’, I tell ya.

My rhododendrum, rhododendren, big ass flowering shrub, is doing some serious budding in the face of the warmer temps. I hope it doesn’t get whollaped by snow and ice.

I’ve sometimes thought about planting witch hazel for the earliest late winter color. But have a relatively bad track record with planted trees and shrubs, so it’s probably just as well that I haven’t murdered a witch hazel along with the rest.
Am craving spring. C’mon little springtime, you can get here!

I do NOT see that blooming. NO NO NO!!! Not with snow on the way I don’t.
