late april pics: from the Culberson Asiatic Arboretum
The second picture is of young winter hazel leaves (Corylopsis spicata). I really wish I had taken some shots of the blooms from a couple of months ago. Like it's relative the witch hazel, it is blooms on bare wood. I am not a botanist so don't hold me to any taxonomical quotes on this witch hazel/winter hazel relationship.....I don't have time to wiki it, (or better yet, break out the Hortus III).
