Who loves photos? Tom loves photos!

Carypoteris has such nice winter character, I'd never seen it in the winter before but I really like how it has an almost Japanese Lantern like quality.

So good!

I don’t remember this witch hazel’s name but it’s not quite as nice as Jelena…the leaves are much more persistent and the flowers are no where near as large

It finally snowed out so I decided to stop by the Botanic Gardens after work and take some pictures of all the wintery goodness.  I hope you guys enjoy it!

This view of the Japanese Garden always reminds me of the movie Spirited Away (which you should all go see if you haven’t).

    • Yeah…I kind of just wanted to stop and stare, unfortunately there was a line of people waiting to take pictures of it so that probably would have been a little bit rude

    • The color is absolutely ridiculous (and I love it for that). I really can’t figure out how that color flower would ever have been a good thing in the wild…
