Winter flowers

It was great to see the RHS garden coming to life last weekend. Not only were there snowdrops, but also daffodils, miniature cyclamen, winter aconite and dwarf crested iris. 

I managed to get a macro shot of a winter blooming camellia.fullsizeoutput_114

Then there was this very strange one – Edgeworthia chrysantha ‘Grandiflora.’ An unusual looking flower, which is generally pest and disease free – according to the RHS. It originates from the Himalayas and was introduced in the 1850’s. It is tricky to cultivate, but produces fragrant blooms if successful.fullsizeoutput_10e

Finally – my abstract version of the red witch hazel.fullsizeoutput_10b
