Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, February 2012

The mild winter here in the northeast has given us the most wonderful February Bloom Day ever. From the dusky tones of Erica carnea, which started showing color at Thanksgiving, to the flaming red of Hamamelis x intermedia 'Diane', which has just burst into bloom this week, the garden is really coming to life.
