Feb. 22 at the Arboretum

A chilly, rainy, gray day at the Arboretum today. Dodging raindrops, I walked around, camera in hand, and found a few more signs of life, i.e., another blooming hybrid Witch Hazel (Hamamelis x intermedia cv. ‘Sunburst’), the unusual flowers of Ivory Prince Hellebore (Helleborus x. nigersmithii cv. Walhelivor) and the tiny cones of Japanese Plum Yew (Cephalotaxus harringtonia). Sometimes it’s hard to find signs of life in February, but the effort is worth it!
