Winter Bling

The holidays are over and the gloomy, gray January of 2014 has begun.  We've seen several days of cloud cover and rain....not just the normal Pacific Northwest drizzle, but RAIN!!  I'm looking forward to a few days of sun which is being predicted. 

In the gloom of winter we have a bright ray of bling along our driveway.  Our Witch Hazel is in full bloom.  I love that deep yellow and red challenging the gray sky for dominance.  Our Winter Jasmine is also in bloom in our back yard.  Next summer I'm definitely going to search for more winter bloomers.
