Monday Eye Candy

This picture was taken this morning, 1-16, at the NY Botanical Garden.  What an amazing pop of color for your winter landscape!  I would love to look out my window and see this tree in my back yard on a cold January day.

Dave's Garden has really great comments about Chinese Witch Hazel, scroll down on his site to view.  In Ohio, we are in zone 5 (ish).  Sounds like it may need a little extra protection during the harshest months of winter. 

Real Estate Tip: In these non- blooming/growing months in the mid-west, it's really hard for buyers to envision what the yard will look like in the spring, summer and fall months.  Give them something to look at that gives a promise of Spring!  Evergreens, boxwoods, berry producing shrubs, holly and Chinese Witch Hazel are great examples of making your home stand out during these sometimes bleak times.
