Witch Hazel

365/17

Taken on this day last year, a close up of witch hazel blossom.  Hamamelis is a super shrub/small tree that flowers in January – March, depending on the variety.  I love the waxy petals, like orange peel.  They make hamamelis a very useful plant for adding winter colour to the garden. But the best thing of all is their spicy scent.
