I have just ordered my first witch hazel. These shots make me so anxious for it to bloom - next year! Gorgeous pics. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's day!

Rose said...

How lovely! Is this growing in your garden? I must have missed it this summer. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

They are so pretty. I love the little hearts. My witch hazel is barely blooming. Isn't it odd how our different climates respond to the tiny call of spring?~~Dee

Marguerite said...

I have a fall blooming witch hazel and every year when I see photos like this I think I must buy a spring blooming one. They are such a wonderful start to the season.

Jason said...

I have a young Hamamelis vernalis but it's got a couple of years to go before blooming. Can't wait!

Shirley said...

Oh Lisa… every year you share these blooms I say I should add this plant to my garden… swoon… another year I will enjoy sharing yours :-) Great images and detail… hoping you had a lovely day with DB :-D

I tried planting a Diane witch hazel, but picked a terrible spot. I am going to try again.

Hi Lisa, long time since I've visited. I remember back in the '80's when I lived in Alabama, we had a witch hazel in the yard. I don't think I've ever seen one growing up here in the frozen north. They are probably too smart to grow here:)
