January 2008 Bloomday
My flowers for January Bloomday.
Only a few flowers blooming this month. There were a few buds on the calendulas, and I saw some snowdrops peeking out of the grass, but those weren't blooming just yet.
Here are the flowers:Witch Hazel (Hamamelis) my favorite scent of the winter garden. I am always surprised at how powerful this little tree's perfume is, wafting on the cold air, it reaches me as I wander around the garden. And every time, I say "Wow!"
Heather, I love this plant. I've had it for years, it was a Mother's Day gift from my kids when they were very young.
Godetia, surprise! The flowers were hidden beneath their foliage, probably keeping a little bit warmer in there.
Euphorbia just beginning their octapus-tentacle blooms.
Violas by the back door.
And once more, Witch Hazel, because I love it so.
