Old and New

Yellow Witchhazel hybrid in the winter sun, Brooklyn Botanic

I went to Brooklyn Botanic today because of Karla's post about the blooming South African bulbs in the Warm Temperate Pavilion on Brooklyn Botanic's website, but found myself outside mostly caught between the beauty of the old and the new. I never made it inside, but that's ok. It's a good excuse to return again this week. I bet it will be a beautiful week at Brooklyn Botanic outside and in, but most of the blooms will be inside.
