It's the first Bloomday of the New Year! I've shared many images of fuzzy Tetrapanax papyrifer buds over the years, usually saying something like "maybe this will be the year they finally bloom," well, this is the first year they're still holding their own in January (not flopped over and mushy from a freeze), but I'm starting to fear the ship has sailed on the idea of them actually blooming.
Arctostaphylos x ‘Austin Griffiths' is covered in flowers.
Abutilon Nuabyell has been blooming since, well, forever.
Ditto with Nuabtang...
Edgeworthia chrysantha 'Nanjing Gold' florets are starting to open.
The hummingbirds are lining up.
Hamamelis x intermedia 'Rochester'
Euphorbia rigida, just beginning its show.
Grevillea 'Ned Kelly'
There are many Helleborus just about ready to open, including 'Ice 'n Roses'...
And Helleborus x ballardiae Pink Frost.
Helleborus x hybridus 'Jade Tiger' is already there.
Isn't it fabulous?
There are Blueberry blooms too, it's been a freaky mild winter.
Jasminum nudiflorum (love how this looks like a stretched panoramic photo, when it's not).
And finally a couple of Mahonia, M x media 'Charity'...
And M. x media 'Marvel'...
