Some of the flowers I saw when I visited my local park at the weekend. Spring is definitely on its way.

 

Witch Hazel

How can it be so long since I last posted? Already, the darkest days of the year have passed, making way for tentative signs of spring.

I saw this witch hazel last weekend when we went for a rare family stroll in the park. Beautiful wisps and shreds of yellow, and a surprisingly strong, sweet fragrance.
