Firework on New Year's Day
Saturday, 31 Dec 11 Rainy 13°C / 55°F
The shrub was promising its beautiful blooms since weeks already, but now it’s really there: My Witch-hazel ‘Jelena’ is blooming!
Not very enthusiastic yet, that’s true, but that will be better within a few weeks. On this moment, one twig has many beautiful blooms, the rest of the shrub shows only a few scattered flowers. In fact, my Hamamelis isn’t that early: in most years it started blooming in the last week of the year.
But my round-leaf Cyclamen (Cyclamen coum) has been speedy this winter: during the past years, it only started blooming in the second half of February. This year, the fall- and spring blooming Cyclamen neatly succeeded each other: One week ago, the last flower of C. hederifolium faded, just at the moment that the first bud of C. coum opened.
And Daisies? Well, I spot them almost year-round…
