which hazel (Hamamelis) is one of the only flowering shrubs which blooms in early spring. ever since I’ve been a girl we had a witch hazel tree growing at home in ireland. i loved it so much, it was one of the first trees i planted in my garden in scotland and have watched it grow….albeit very slowly, over the last 12 years. it not only looks gorgeous but it also has this delicious smell —dont ask me how to describe it….all i can tell you is thats it beautiful & sweet & very distinctive (although it might not everyones cup of tea) !!!
anyway……my witch hazel started blooming only a few days ago and it looked just stunning in the sun today!! JX
