Signs of Spring

Chinese Witch Hazel

Chinese Witch Hazel

It is still only the middle of February, but the signs of spring are unmistakable. Anne and I took advantage of the uncharacteristically warm weather of late and went to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Normally at this time of year the only thing going at the gardens is the annual orchid show. We eschewed that event and spent most of our time there touring the grounds. There are a few blossoms that are already out. Most prevalent was the witch hazel, as pictured above, but there were also snowdrops, crocuses and even an early iris or two.
