Winter flowers and random bits of news
|The gray garden|
|Kerria japonica (Easter Rose) - I don't recall it ever blooming in January.|
This is one of my favorite spring shrubs.
|Honeysuckle "Alabama Crimson"|
|Loropetalum - not the best photo but wanted to show that this was blooming in January (I've got to practice working with the focus on this new camera)|
|Camellia "Magnoliaflora" - despite some imperfections, an exquisite camellia. |
The leaves have been tarnished by the soot that comes from the hackberry trees.
|My favorite scent from the garden comes from Osmanthus (Sweet Olive)|
|This is Osmanthus "Gulftide" which has sticky holly-like foliage. |
I have not seen flowers on this shrub yet.
|Another great winter fragrance comes from Winter Honeysuckle (Lonicera fragrantissima)|
|Roses in January? Why not? This is "La Marne"|
|Camellia "C.M. Wilson" (and sport)|
