First Bloom of the Season!

Witch Hazel is native to North America...  


Traditionally, Witch Hazel is yellow in color,
and from a distance it is sometimes mistaken for early blooming Forsythia.


This is a cultivar named "Diane," which I planted in April, 2006.
I chose this one for its orange hues.



The blooms are not true flowers,
but do indeed resemble the gnarled fingers of a witch!

It's Outdoor Wednesday!
