I'd thought that the glorious winter flowering witch hazel in front of our mountain house was a Chinese witch hazel, until reading my garden blogging friend Janet's post about Hamamelis vernalis (hmm, maybe it was on FB?). I couldn't find the reference for a link -- but thanks, Janet, for pointing me in the right direction!
It was looking lovely last weekend, complete with flowers. It certainly seems to be H. vernalis!

About this blog
Our gardens (now solely in the mountains of NC) have been increasingly home to native plants, birds, small mammals, and insects of all sorts. My gardening companion (my husband) is equally the gardener in our gardens. Woody, our rescue Golden, puts his own stamp on our gardens. He follows his previous fellow goldens (and my former gardening assistants): Mocha and Chessie. They bring life to our gardens.
