Beautiful, thank you!
That was lovely. What was the pink flower?
Thank you John. It's been a heck of a day and your photos inspired me.
I'm glad I could spread some winter cheer. I looked at my camellias the other day and wondered how depressed I would get if I had no flowers to look at during the dark season.
The pink flower is a viburnum ('Dawn') that blooms from autumn through winter into spring. It shuts down during periods of heavy frost but bounces back right afterwards. (The winter cherrries and winter jasmine are also blooming right now; the hellebores are about to start putting out flowers. But only the viburnum is delightfully fragrant.)
I see Prunus x subhirtella 'Autumnalis Rosea' at the top of the page, with a camellia below that. Where's the Bodnant viburnum?
The viburnum is in my photo archives because the content of this web page changes about every week or so.
Wonderful, thank you John. I would love it if my winter garden were so beautiful with blooms. Oh well, all of my shrubs are very young.
It's changed again (weekly update).
OK, I see, the posting and the discussion about the viburnum were all on the 18th.
John, great pictures and interesting site. Another site to check and my checking sites budget is already so full!! I have a hunch this one is is worth it. Thanks for posting this.
what is sarcoccocea? Is there a common name?
Ooops! Typo. It should read Sarcococca.
