On winter flowers

I don’t know many plants that flower in winter, in my head none had big poofy blooms.

Then I accompanied DB on a work trip, calling in at his workshop en route.

I am now better educated.

Trees do blossom in January. Especially mostly neglected trees kept in corridors.

This particular corridor is only marginally heated and any natural light that fights its way through the workshop windows, then through the frosted glass wall dividing the workshop from the corridor is tired before it reaches the leaves. It wouldn’t strike me as the ideal climate for a deciduous tree, but it seems perfectly happy….

  1. And I know it very well but like Claudette my mind is off balance about it at the moment. She will remember sooner than I will I am sure-well she’s younger so she ought to! But wait! Is it not a hibiscus?

    1. I thought the leaves looked hibiscussy, but DB’s Hibiscus* has different flowers… although I’m going to take a wild guess and assume that there are probably a million different hibiscusses… so maybe it is one after all that 🙂

      *with a capital because it’s ours 🙂
