Merry Christmas, everyone! Since I've become used to posting pictures of plants, what better way to express holiday wishes than showing some pictures I took yesterday. What is there to take pictures of this time of year? Buds!
Buds of Siebold Virburnum (Viburnum Sieboldii)
Bud of Great Rhododendron (Rhododendron maximum)
Buds of Saucer Magnolia (Magnolia x soulangeana)
Buds of dwarf Colorado Blue Spruce (Picea pungens, dwarf variety)
Buds of Azalea, not sure of species
Now, only 4-5 more months before the buds start opening into flowers and leaves!
Merry Christmas, everyone.
