Since that image looks pretty pathetic in black ink only, I'll also furnish the original full-color photo I submitted of a gorgeous witch hazel backed by a holly. Click on it to see it in larger size and get the full effect.
The whole point of this "Winter Beauties" walk at Green Spring Gardens on Saturday is to see the color and interest of these gorgeous shrubs. In late winter, they are among the very few things getting us through until spring. The newspaper's version of the photo more accurately shows what a February here withOUT these plants would be like.
