Witch Hazel blooms

witch hazel bloom
Hello February.
Hello Winter sun.
Hello brisk.
Hello tiny hiding violets.
Hello witch hazel. You're one of my favorites.

You mean that's the clear liquid that I wipe over my face sometimes or smear on cuts or wounds to make it all better? Wow. It's so pretty!

After years of yearning, I finally bought a witch hazel. 'Arnold Promise' lured me all the way from the nursery's front door with his fragrant, golden yellow, starburst flowers. I couldn't help myself! And I ain't gonna regret succumbing to his charms.

Nice. For me it's the daphne. Does me in every time.
