This crazy daylily opened last week but it is supposed to be pink. I think the cold air scared the pink out of it. Hilarious!

Narcissus ~ paperwhites in bloom right now. Their schedule is always the beginning of January here.

Photo was taken this gloomy morning prior to the heavy rains.

Those cheery Daffodils will be soon to follow and spring is another day closer. Hooray!Thumb of 2013-01-09/pod/7f90f8

My Hellebores will beat out my Chinese Witch Hazel when it comes to early blooming nodding My pink pussy willow is right in there for early blooms as well.

I have never been tempted to plant pussywillow.Now I ealize the cultivated ones might not spread like the stick DD brought home from a school trip to a local nursery.That thing was huge and multistemmed after 3 years.Parts died and broke off.
It must have been a swamp variety.

I have 'French Pink' and it has not been overly aggressive. Easy to prune and keep the size you want it. The catkins begin forming in the Fall and it provides year around interest here.



In February


In March


Catkins beginning to form in late September




You are right in that some of the pussy willows can be large and unruly.
