shrub of the week

Chinese witch hazel

witch hazelSeen here on the Brown campus and dotted elsewhere around the city. It is not a type of forsythia which is still a few weeks off. It blooms every year in sync with the start of spring training. This is not the first sign of spring really, more like the beginning of the end of winter. Actually it’s more like the end of the middle. Oh who am I kidding, this is Rhode Island, we’re screwed until May.
