Liz – The plant catalogue said witch hazel Arnold Promise which blooms during February and March. I ordered it and 38 years later it still only blooms in November which makes it a native Hamamelis virginiana.
It stands in front of my dining room window here in Lexington, Kentucky where I love it for its form.
Here are close-ups of the blossom remnants and a few leaves that have hung on in this crazy up and down winter weather.
Mike – I like apples and generally eat one most days. There were two in mum’s garden, one eating the other cooking, so apples often featured as puddings. One of my favourites has always been apple and blackberry crumble.
I mention this as the apple tree that I’m following is surrounded by brambles with stems growing up through the tree.
