And just like that...the Hamamelis is History

This glorious little shrub started blooming on March 16th and today it's finished - one month of bloom is fantastic. Yesterday during the day it just started to drop all its flaky yellow bits leaving behind twigs and swollen leaf buds. Right on cue an Abeliophyllum distichum has started to blossom. It really isn't the most splashy of bushes, the flowers are small and are rather meanly scattered along the branches. However, after this past winter any and all flowers are welcome no matter how small and insignificant.
