Today at the Arboretum – 3/1/22

A cold, cloudy day, but I did manage to find a few tiny gems among the bare twigs. A sunny yellow bunch of Jasminum nudiflorum flowers (Winter Jasmine), a single coral pink Prunus mume cv. Kobai flower (Japanese Apricot) and a few Salix gracilistyla var. Melanostachys catkins (Black Pussy Willow). I am encouraged by the fact that we are now in March and Spring is only 19 days away, officially at least!
